  1. Heinrich, as a subscriber, I appreciate your videos, but during this one I wondered how your experience as a strategy consultant adds to the value. The points you rightfully make in this video are by no means expert advice, they constitute the basics of the basics.

  2. Good tips! Poor audio and light in video conferences are a frequent problem just cause they haven’t watched firm learning πŸ™‚ Otherwise the key mission is to avoid too loud snoring in the audience during your presentation.
