Ian did an excellent job.  He was engaging, funny and very conversant in the issues of post-acute to acute care.  The panel he facilitated afterward was diverse and represented a variety of points of view, but Ian engaged each panel member, integrated their comments, challenged some and keep the session moving.

Ian effectively set the tone for the balance of Summit.
