“Ron awakens the mind of any willing listener, the trouble is when you are part of Ron’s audience you have to reign yourself in and really focus on hearing what is being said and the implications for where you are at in your thinking – there is no such thing as passive listening in this talk . You will come away rejuvenated, the senses have been truly slapped”.
