I am having some audio issues with this presentation - excess noise and the speaker cutting in and out. Any suggestions?

The webinar itself is a recording of a conference phone call with accompanying slides and does have a couple of instances where the audio has feedback or there is an echo due to the participants phones during the recording, but the majority of the presentation should be audible. A slow internet connection might be affecting your viewing experience.
