“Congratulations on another very successful IBF 19th Annual Venture Capital Conference. It continues to be a great pleasure in working with IBF, and I hope to have contributed in some small way to the success of your conference. It was a particular privilege this year to have helped in honoring Irwin Federman. He is a wonderful executive, investor and human being, and our industry needs more people like him.”

“I wanted to thank you again for organizing such a great event this week. The IBF Venture Capital Investing Conference gets better and better each year, and the quality of attendees is absolutely stellar. I felt that our investor panel session was well organized, and I especially benefited from the "pre-presentation process" that you spearheaded. I think the combination of slides and Q&A during the panel worked well, and I hope you receive positive feedback from your attendees on this.
I just want to reiterate that I found tremendous value in participating on the investor panel again this year, and I hope we can continue the tradition – I'd very much like to participate again next year if you'll have me.”

“Just a quick note of thanks for your efforts on my, and more importantly Moss Adams', behalf yesterday at the VCI Conference. Certainly things were organized in a way that allowed the panel to focus on what we needed to. I thought the discussion went very well and I couldn't have asked for a better speaking engagement overall. Thanks again.”
