Great overview on how to start investing
It gave a very clear overview on pros and cons of investing and how to assemble a portfolio. Gave me the confidence to skip the marketing from the fund options and go straight to index funds.
Only thing I missed a bit was on how to select a suitable investment platform and how to invest in items outside of shares / indexes (eg gold). Other then that great starting guide!

Sound less like a compere.
A useful, bite sized introduction to investment strategy.
