Thank you so much Darren. You were amazing. It was like you work here at STARTTS, you were very insightful about our work in your comments. You were very prepared and your opening address hit home so well. It set the scene for the forum. You are a fantastic facilitator. You provided great summaries and linkages that made the two hours fly like a blink.
