One behalf of all the team here, thank you for your exceptional contribution to our Executive Manager Forum. The feedback on your presentation was overwhelmingly positive. The breadth of your experiences, and the depth of the insight you have gained from them (particularly your reflection on the importance of truth, listening and ethics), made a strong impression on all participants. But equally importantly, a large number of our people commented on your humility and your ability to make your experiences with exalted leaders relevant to managers in their day-today jobs and lives. And on top of all that, your ability to speak without notes for 45 minutes provided a master class in presentation skills.

It is clear to me that you gave of yourself in a way that many high profile speakers do not; you created a feeling of intimacy and uniqueness among 300 people through your willingness to listen to our needs and tailor your message, rather than (as in many cases with keynote speakers), a feeling that the audience could have been anyone.
As a result of all these qualities, you opened the day in a way that created a high degree of energy and inspiration, and made the job so much easier for the rest of us. The day overall well exceeded my expectations, and your contribution was a major factor in that.

With sincere thanks,


Ian Narev
