Donna had a wonderful time presenting her Alt Legal Webinar. One of the key differentiators between speaking for Alt Legal and other institutions is that Donna felt that the audience was genuinely engaged, which enhanced her speaking experience. “The audience was truly interested in the topic and asked good questions, instead of just listening passively.”
One standout feature was her interactions with the Alt Legal team in preparation for her webinar. She says, “The staff was very helpful.” Additionally, Donna worked closely with Bri Van Til, Alt Legal’s Director of Education, to plan the webinar and coordinate all of the important details, technical arrangements, and logistics to ensure that the webinar presentation was smooth for Donna and the audience. Donna was thoroughly pleased about working with Bri, “She clearly loves what she does, and it was a pleasure working with her.”
Overall, Donna says that she is “incredibly likely” to recommend speaking at Alt Legal to other presenters.
