Anthony did a tremendous job, particularly as a last minute stand-in when our original speaker was taken ill.
— Greater Cambridge Partnership
Anthony did a tremendous job for our two days conference. He was a consummate professional and a great chairman for the event. He mastered the industry and the audience instantly. Anthony did deeply contribute to the programme and added an invaluable dimension to the Question Time sessions. In so doing, he had a major role in the success of the event. Hopefully, we will be able to work with him again in the near future.
