“Congratulations on an outstanding symposium. All your effort and persistence, not to mention design and recruiting work, clearly shone through and paid off”
“I was so impressed at the way you structured and ran the Symposium. Above all the composition of the group was very impressive and so adroitly balanced the private sector, international agencies and academics. Equally important was the time allocated to debate in the plenary sessions – too many conferences simply do not allow proper time for such rich interaction. Finally the time for meeting and talking – down to the seating places – made it effortless to interact with such an amazing group. Congratulations all round”.
“Thank you for a stimulating and thought provoking symposium. I greatly enjoyed inter-acting with new people, ideas and knowledge. It was a rich experience”.
“A note of thanks for having invited me to participate in the Emerging Markets Symposium this past weekend. The discussions were rich and certainly benefited from the diverse range of backgrounds and experience in the room. Once again, thanks for including me. It was as refreshing as it was inspiring.”
“I wanted to be sure and tell you how valuable I found the conference and how well I thought it was organized. It was still daunting for an outsider to the issues, but I really enjoyed it and benefitted from it”
“I have been enough times at the sharp edge of organising and taking responsibility for conferences to know that the success of the conference is exactly in proportion to the amount of time and thought given to the nature and structure of the programme and people invited to speak. The conference at the weekend was a cracking success by any measure and I would like to thank you and to congratulate you on making it happen. I hope it met your expectations.”

I have read the press release with considerable interest and was particularly pleased with the expanding scope of recommendations. From school to the world is a good way to organize the great diversity of efforts being requested and promoted. I will be happy to participate in dissemination efforts to the extent of my capacity and will look forward to hearing from your communication people."
“All great with the exception of the preamble that states we recognize there is gender inequality everywhere in the world, not just emerging markets. I had an enriching experience and thank you very much for including me Ian. The care the participants received was outstanding and the caliber of the members exceptionally high. All in all it was very worthwhile.”
