Feedback 1 “Thank you David for a wonderful second seminar series. They get better and better.” - Professor Herman Van Eyken, Head of School, Griffith Film School, Griffith University,Brisbane, Australia
Feedback 2 “These interactive seminars present a truly unique and exciting innovation that adds greatly to the school’s existing academic curriculum. David has developed a compelling method of interweaving formal presentation techniques with film clips, audio- visual elements and face-to-face discussion that educates, entertains and inspires. The student response has been extraordinary. Not only are they gripped by the seminar content and discussion, but also many insist that they prefer the teleconference format to a normal teaching session.” Professor Steve Dixon, President, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore
Feedback 3 “Thanks so much for this afternoon David. Lots of really thought-provoking ideas and useful insights. Loved the choice of clips and as ever, full of admiration at the manner in which you engage with your audience. Will report back to the Vice-Chancellor on the success of this and other lectures in the series.” – Graeme Thompson, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Design and Media, University of Sunderland
