I like these events because it's an opportunity to hear what my peers are saying and what they're doing in different areas and it's good to see what other people's challenges are, what their responses are. I really like these 1-1 meetings because the way that people prepare for them is tailored for your issues - and there are very, very constructive conversations in those meetings, so I actually like these. I learn from them, they learn from me - there's no sales push in there at all, it's about understanding each other's issues and that's what we should be trying to do as a prerequisite to any business.
