"I recently moderated a panel Benu spoke on at Webmaster World's Pubcon South 2009."
I was impressed by the way she engaged with her audience and gave real life examples from her experience of dealing with systems architecture and some of the challenges that face a company. Not one person left the room when she spoke and the comments I received from the attendees afterwards were that they truly appreciated how Benu was so willing to give away useful information and action items that they could use to do their job better. In fact, a couple people commented they couldn't write it all down fast enough and were looking forward to downloading her presentation to go through in more detail!
