Debbie, I loved everything about the content.There were times when a couple members spoke at long lengths - however I feel you did all you could in those situations shy of potentially cutting off and/or embarrassing those ladies, and your expert protocols still ensured we all had many opportunities to talk!Cohort 1 Participant
