He was an excellent speaker, obviously very knowledgeable and able to clearly communicate his thoughts. He answered questions thoroughly. We learned a lot.

GREAT VENUE, BEAUTIFUL FOOD, INTERESTING TABLE MATES! NOT A WORKABLE PROGRAM FORMAT. THE SPEAKER WAS GREAT WHEN WE SPOKE DURING THE COCKTAIL HOUR. THE 2 CHAIR FORMAT WAS NOT AFFECTED. SPEAKING FROM A STANDING MIKE TAKES IN THE WHOLE AUDIENCE. THE EFFECT OF SEATING DID NOT INCLUDE THE AUDIENCE. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Best speaker in a long time. His knowledge of how markets and rates impact domestically and worldwide was presented from one who works at a level deeper than the layman.

Mr. McLoughlin was very generous with his time by meeting with the students for one hour prior to the event. He was approachable, and students felt comfortable asking him questions.

I agree with the first comment about lack of clarity of the conversation. I was in the first row and in front of a speaker and still had a problem hearing significant parts of the conversation. I have no hearing problem and can only imagine the difficulty a person with impaired hearing had. I believe the problem would be solved by having a speaker talk directly to the microphone. But the steak was fine medium rare.

The venue and meal were excellent. Aside from the difficulty of hearing, the speaker seemed quite knowledgeable and interesting. I would have liked to have heard more from him about the “world economy “ as advertised. A number of questioned were instead focused on U.S. interest rates, housing, etc. Perhaps the speaker should have been given more time to present and less time in questions as previously done. We were impressed that the speaker gave his time to the students.

This was our first evening since joining and we felt very welcome. We very much like the venue and loved the dinner. We did have a lot of difficulty hearing the speaker and we are hopeful that the sound issues can be addressed for the next meeting.
