"If you could pass on our thanks to Suzie, what a great talk, had amazing feedback from the team, they found it really interesting and informative and I just wanted Suzie to know that she had a massive impact on them.  We had 94 participants at one point which is pretty impressive when we are all zoom fatigued and I have had many requests for the recording from those who couldn’t see it.  Suzie brought a greater understanding on climate change to us all." - Samantha, HR & Office Coordinator, INTELEX
