The conference was truly a success and inspirational blast for me personally: thanks for inviting our guest Josephine Lee, who set up purely a brilliant start and provided useful pieces of advise during the workshop. Without such an exemplary inspirational, at the same time down-to-earth speaker with international experience it wouldn't have been such a terrific event! I learnt a lot. Food was excellent!"
