Nadine Dereza as a presenter and chair, did a truly excellent job. Not only was she always very well prepared, informed about the contents addressed during the summit and the backgrounds of the individual guest speakers - she also showed a great sense of humour, spontaneity and collegiality towards the organization. We have received nothing but positive feedback from our delegates, speakers and visitors, who highly appreciated her professionalism and personality.
We were impressed by her clear understanding of our business which she demonstrated after such a short space of time to carry out research.
