I was particularly impressed by the effort Ian Goldin put into preparing a presentation which suited our audience.

It was a tour de force, which impressed everyone I spoke to. 

Although he was speaking to an audience of specialists, he had done his homework well enough to avoid any blunders in their areas of expertise. Furthermore, by pulling together a much broader view of the subject than any of them had considered before, he left the audience in awe
