"I was honoured to be there and enjoyed the presentation immensely"; "thanks again for an outstanding event yesterday - evidenced by a substantial number of emails sent by our members."

"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."
