"Once again, on behalf of the team, I’d like to thank you for the outstanding presentation you delivered at our
Strategy Workshop. Your extensive research and tremendous insights on very complex, volatile and controversial topics
generated much debate in our small group and plenary sessions and certainly gave us plenty food for thought.
We really appreciated your objectivity in that you not only highlighted the areas of concern in the macro
environment, but you identified the many positives and potential opportunities there are for a community-conscious company like ours. Most importantly, we were able to take salient points from you presentation and generate
concrete steps for future investigation and action which will undoubtedly be of considerable value to our
customers, employees, the communities in which we trade and ultimately our Company. Finally, congratulations
on your hat-trick with us!"
