‘The blockchain event was probably the best and most interesting conference I/we have ever attended. Sorry we had to leave early – we have three acq’s and a disposal going on –
we had to get back to the office. However, we got everything we needed and more than we hoped for out of the conference…..it was outstanding. Your mix and quality of speakers was incredible. If I can help promote the business/conference, please just let me know. Well
