We would once again like to thank you for your continued support & dedication to making our event last night a success. The conversation that you created was both amazing & necessary for many of the students in attendance. 


In terms of feedback, we want to emphasize that we were very satisfied with your involvement in the event.

Your contribution of marketing materials was extremely helpful in our effort to introduce you to our attendees before and during the event. Your speech was engaging & informative, and you did an amazing job of guiding the Q+A portion to encourage more thought from the students.
