Testimonial

“You were largely responsible for the successful tempo and tone of our annual conference and I wish to thank you warmly for your work. When the meeting flagged, you brought it to life with humor, wit or a pointed remark. When the meeting threatened to get out of hand, you calmed things down and pushed the discussion along in the right direction.”
Kofi Annan, former UN secretary general, and head of The Global Humanitarian Forum.

'"Thank you for carrying out such a smooth event - managing the glitches, the time issues, and the diverse opinions - with such good cheer and dynamic participation. More importantly, your very quick mind ensured perfect digestion of the material and ensured that the many-layered content of the report got a good airing." Anuradha Rajivan, UN Development Programme, at the launch of the UNDP's report on Gender Inequalities
