It was a fantastic meeting! Great "real world" CTO cases; no cherry picking! I love that!!!

The meeting was both enjoyable and educational. I was struck by the quality of all aspects, but especially the humility and welcoming friendliness displayed by the fine UK organising faculty.

This is my third course that I have attended. The course has grown tremendously with very high calibre presentations and cases. The educational impact is superb.
