to say about our eMeetings

"The eConference that GRI had organized was very well organized given the circumstances and obviously not the same as a fisical conference, the personal touch is missing, but under the circumstances that we are dealing with, I think it was very well organized.

The form was very informative, it’s a topic that is particularly of interest to me and personally, which is why I thought it proper to spend time and it was worth it. I thought all of the delegates made some very important and pertinent points. The main gentleman, Mr. Mahesh Ramanujam, was obviously an expert and someone who knows the subject, and it was worthwhile listening to him, so, thank you. And, the format itself, I think the medium it was, let put it this way: it was efficient and met the objectives."
