"A huge thank you ... what a fantastic way to start the festival weekend!"; "David Lough was one of the best speakers I've heard - he made a subject in which I had no particular interest beforehand fascinating. I'd have happily listened for an hour."
"Thank you so much for your excellent talk. The reaction of the members I spoke to afterwards was without exception that it had been one of our very best meetings."
"David Lough Hits a Home Run. The Awards Dinner was as good as any of our productions over the last thirty years. I am not sure how we will top it next year..."
