His talk was perfect, the members of BNSGC loved it and will go down in BNSGC history as one of the best days ever at the golf club.  Thank you so much for all your help in the end to organise Bernard to come. I will certainly use you again in the future and I am hoping now we will make this an annual event to bring a famous name to the club each year. Thank you again and please please pass on my thanks once again to Bernard for making the day so special, creating memories and above all for speaking on my day.
