Your presentation was terrific. The style you portrayed kept everyone engaged. Your personal story and connection to our community, I felt, elevated the message you delivered to our members and their guests. One of the fascinating features as a presenter is to establish that personal connection with the audience. You achieved that by showing the “day to day” Yigal with your immediate family by showing the pictures. My personal favorite part is when you shared your “vulnerability” with the story of your wife, when she said she didn’t marry you because she did not want to be alone. That statement resonated with most entrepreneurs and executives in the audience, considering they also needed the support from their spouse to be successful. Obviously, when your daughter joined you, just reaffirmed your personal life story and mission.
