Because face it -- music, if incorporated poorly, can be so darn cheesy. Music?

Im not sure if the SME was reading a script, reading the notes, or just speaking from the heart. My argument is that if the information is presented as 'real' conversation it is more believable, more engaging and ultimately more effective.
