"I wanted so send a quick note to say thank you very much for inviting us to Trends 2017. Not only were the sessions very informative, it was great to make some good contacts with others in the industry. I think what made the sessions the most beneficial was the intimacy of the group and the ability to share best practices. The hospitality shown by you and your team was nothing short of amazing from how Angela made the travel arrangements, to Alison’s attention to detail for the entire program and of course how you opened your beautiful home up and hosted that memorable evening (not to mention the beautiful wines in your cellar). And of course we cannot overlook Eric his attention to detail and the effort he continues to provide us with only the best in service.
I would like to thank you for all your work putting the seminar together I found it to be very beneficial. The speakers were very informative and enlightening looking at the industry from different angles and points of view."
