“The event was everything and more than we hoped! Feedback immediately after and since has been that it was the best event they had attended. Steven and his team were absolutely fantastic, so accommodating, so friendly and it really was a pleasure to host them at 25 Bank Street, and even better that we were able to make it happen in person – something I think we all agreed was absolutely worth it. For Steven himself, what can I say… he exceeded even the very highest expectations we had for him – so intelligent and inspiring with his wisdom, but also so generous with his time.
