I just heard Lorne speak on his big cat parallels to performance optimization. Fantastic in every way. Not only entertaining, but it was insightful and motivating. I highly recommend you bring Lorne to your event and learn from the Big Cat Guy.

The way he connected it all was just absolutely amazing. It was fascinating! He was very inspirational, and I loved it!
