You did a great job linking all the presentations using both gravitas and humour. You also got the panel session buzzing which I suspect we could have run for another hour without losing the momentum...
Martin Roberts is a very charming, warm person, who was so keen to help us, and his presence at the event made it all the more special.
Your recent presentation on the current state of the UK property market to the lawyers, barristers and judges attending our annual conference was extremely well received...
I would like to extend our most grateful thanks to you for being the auctioneer at our Summer Ball held at Blenheim Palace last weekend...
