"Pass on my thanks to Marc for his talk yesterday. It's never the easiest slot being up last but he had the audience engaged, if not gripped, and the fact they wanted to ask questions and delay heading to the bar said it all really! I know Marc has to shoot off after so I didn't get the chance to catch him, but just wanted to pass on my thanks and appreciation for a brilliant talk" - Matt, Head of Marketing and Business Development, The Credit Hire Organisation
