Did anyone prep the room?
Couldn’t see (no light on speakers).
Couldn’t hear (microphone not loud enough).
It started 20 minutes late. No apology for late start - which seemed to be because private event finished late - but no mention of how audience might become a friend or patron.
VC welcome completely uninspiring. Prof. Thomas much more impressive. A real shame no one there to support her request to make the speakers properly visible. Turning off the (dreadful) PowerPoint not good enough.
Duffy only appeared for 20 minutes and event finished at 7 not 8pm as advertised. No lecture. No Q&A. Very disappointing.
