"Great event! Brett Copes (Fight or Flight Ent) really knows his material and delivers it in a memorable anecdotal fashion. Everything he says has direct application value. He organized my fears about rigging and gave me room to layer in intelligence and community as tools as well as handbooks and formulas. Students were taking copious notes as he began and by the end, the room became still and focused, integrating what Brett was saying into their aerial landscape. Brett tells the truth without being dogmatic. I will not forget what he said today, nor will anyone else."
