ATTENDEE FEEDBACK

"I very much enjoyed the event - thanks and congratulations to all concerned - and will certainly be attending future ones."

"Finally made it to an event, really enjoyed yesterday.Insightful speakers and a good mix of professionals in the room. I really like the event being educational rather than sales based."

"Very interesting session: very enjoyable."

"I really enjoyed the event yesterday and found it really useful. I hadn't been to a GRB meeting previously but will definitely try to attend more in the future as there was some great food for thought."

"The interaction with those in similar positions is of real value and can only be provided at such forums thus making them unique."

"I thought the session was really useful and really good to have people from different industries."

"Really enjoyed this morning, I think you hit just the right balance of information and informality."

“I thought it was very good actually - apart from the fact that I was desperately trying to hide the fact that I had been somewhat ill during the night (not alcohol related I might add!), it was good. Carl is a good speaker and person to get things moving etc - good range of industries/companies represented too.”

"Thanks for yesterday. My first time going to one of those events, rather than hosting them on the other side of the fence! Was very interesting and useful."

"Thanks for a very enjoyable and interesting event this morning."
