I've attended Wesley's talks and really enjoy how conversation he is.
I like how he communicates things in a very clear way instead of
speaking over the audience's head. He keeps the atmosphere fun and
enjoyable for learning.
Although I personally can't go to this (work commitment), I really
encourage any who can to do so.
