I have just arrived back in Ireland after a great trip to your conference and country.  I found the entire experience so valuable and the networks that will be built upon are priceless.  I was overwhelmed by how generous you, Gary and Darwin are with your knowledge and experience. You are wonderful ambassadors for the message of EI.  - Jill Hendron

I just arrived at Puerto Rico safely and wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to each of you for all the things you shared with us during the past conference.   It was really a great chance for me to learn more about EI and about the research that you have been doing. I especially appreciate the information and advice you have provided, as well as the book, journal and all the materials.  Also, the conferences were very useful. I look forward to staying in touch over the coming weeks, months, and years.  - Jean Marie

The similarities in business and academic challenges have never been more clear to me.  I'm thankful for the opportunity to attend, and for the professional yet personal atmosphere that you created for the participants.
