Thank you for the opportunity to discuss Interviews with you on the ACS Forum, I feel that I have learned so much from you, even though I regard myself as a “serial interviewer”…  This we can chat about over coffee!

It was a pleasure facilitating my first panel-event, you 3 made it SOOOO easy

I have had amazing notes sent to me from attendees, thanking us for our impact on their careers, and asking for more (will have to find a spot early next year). Thanking me for our investment, your investment, impacting their careers! 

I hope that we get to see each other soon again.

Thank you again for your honesty and style, and being part of my introduction to public speaking!” Event Organiser.
