  2. How would you introduce yourself, including your role on the account and relevant experience, in a way that sounds authentic and conversational?

“That’s easily the best course I’ve been on in 9 years at eBay. A great combo of practical/applicable advice, and so well presented. Looked like there was a lot of work put into a custom course, and I thought it was totally worth it.”
