Testimonials

The online conference was amazingly useful, and I didn't have to go to London! About half of the speakers were extraordinarily impressive both as speakers *and* in their roles, and it was a privilege to hear from them: any one of them would have been worth the day. The mix of regulators and practitioners was great.
