As we drew the webinar to a close, we didn't get a chance to say thank you personally to Michael. If you could pass on our sincerest thank you to him on my behalf, it would be greatly appreciated. His conversation and insight was second to none, and something I'm very appreciative to be a part of" - Marc, Assistant Manager, Deloitte
