It is extremely rare that I meet people who can within a few hours have a profound impact on my life. Meeting you yesterday was such a moment for me. I listened to you talk about how neuroscience and neuroplasticity was life changing for you. I looked at how passionate you are about the work you do and how engaging you were with everyone. You remained calm, in control and your energy never seemed to drop throughout the day. Normally I struggle to stay focused and engaged and yet I found myself highly focused and engaged listening to your every word and trying desperately not to forget anything.

Hats off to you as truly I have not come across anyone with as much subject knowledge and passion as you have. You bring so much energy into the room and so smoothly engage all participants which I have never seen before. The diversity of exposure and knowledge you brought to all of us was completely out of this world.
