"The value was picking up hard lessons from experiences around the table"

"It gave me a stronger understanding of the concerns facing business' looking to expand globally and an appreciation of how the legal sector can provide advice and assistance in order to facilitate such expansion"

"Key tips taken - look into Investors in People - Look into CXE and similar re opening in the US without setting up a legal entity"

"Key tip for me - research of the market place by client companies together with strong diligence to be performed against any prospective international partners"

"Nelson was the perfect chair. He supported all of the attendees, invited discussion within the forum and provided platforms for all to speak. He deferred appropriately as required and never sought to dominate discussion"

"Excellent offering of advice and experience from Abigail for all the attendees. She was very good at maintaining attention with appropriate use of examples of her own experience"

"I would like to stress that it was a pleasure to be part of a sensible discussion and the offering of pragmatic advice with a group of charming, committed and dedicated business men and business women. Thank you!"
