    Hi, Aaron,

    Can you really answer 10 questions in 30 minutes? That's only 3 minutes a question. I think you need to focus.

      George,

      This is good feedback. I wasn't thinking about answering questions directly per se, but rather sharing our process of running our professional services company in an agile manner, and what we've discovered on the way. I am happy to narrow the focus or increase the session time as you might see fit.

      Thanks again,

      Aaron
