“Just to let you know that when I got back into the office I had a whole host of mails from attendees at the event saying how inspiring & thought provoking your piece was, I would also add that people who had seen other ' key note speakers ' commented on how different your piece was at you focused on what a team can achieve together, not what the leader had achieved. This I think is really powerful. It was a pleasure to host you, you are a true professional, & a very easy person to host.”
