Thank you, Sezen, for an excellent meeting, which I attended in some trepidation, being something of a backroom person, but it was very useful and I made some good contacts.

Many thanks – I’m very happy it hit the spot. I enjoyed the various interactions before, after the presentation and there were a lot of good connections made.
