"You led the conference so brilliantly. You made everything so relaxed and open while whizzing through lots of extremely complicated issues. I have rarely attended an event so well led. People really felt their voices were heard but, most importantly, we achieved so much. And you were very funny!"
Dorothy Byrne, Head of Channel 4 News and Current Affairs
