Thank you again for attending and presenting at our conference. A number of people have already told me (and emailed) how much they enjoyed your session. It's a shame we didn't have more time, but perhaps you'll come again toward the end of the year and we can also look at some experiential games or activities that will help to draw out the unconscious mindset of those who attend. In any case, you did a fantastic job and I appreciate your input.       - Senen Pousa, CEO, Investment Intelligence Corporation
