Thank you so much for all your efforts to make the conference such a resounding success. The 850 delegates were really impressed with both the substance and significance of your presentation and achievements. Thank you for a terrific job.
Many of the delegates commented on how inspiring and thought provoking they found your speech.
I would just like to thank you again for joining us on Tuesday night. I have had some great feedback and your speech has certainly made an impact on quite a few of our guests; including myself. One of our members has come up to me after and mentioned that he is currently undergoing a re-structuring process and you have given him some great ideas. This to me is a prefect outcome. Not just an entertaining speech but one that is relevant to the audience too.
