Harry, I’d like to THANK YOU for your incredible partnership ahead of our first ever Government Digital Transformation Summit. I particularly appreciated how you took the time to understand the context and purpose of this high-profile event, and worked closely with me to identify the perfect speakers for the different sessions in our agenda. Your counsel and flexibility made it so easy to secure just the right people to help inspire and educate our audience of government marketing practitioners. In addition, I was so grateful for how you took complete ownership of the process of liaising with speakers, provided us with timely updates and flagged any issues before they even arose!

Huge thanks, you were fantastic and we look forward to working with you again.
