Your participation contributed to its success. I especially appreciate your joining us at very short notice and for delivering such an insightful keynote address …..I don’t think I have to tell you that your session was very well received. Every person in that room was glued to what you had to say. It was truly riveting, and I know you received very high marks from the audience. You were a life-saver for our event and added great value to the topic. We would like to say thank you again for your flexibility. It was truly a pleasure working with you.
