Geoff's Personal Favorites

Although I loved every ... single ... webinar this year, these five were my personal favorites:

Many others deserve to be in this list, including some that I haven't yet watched (but have bookmarked for later). All 237 webinars in 2022 are certainly worth the replay.

Geoff's classes

They didn't make the top 30, but I really enjoyed presenting these classes this year:
