"I came away both incredibly enlightened and also wondering what we were thinking on a few things. I feel 1000% better about what we are likely to generate via our direct effort this next year. I've engaged others I would consider "gurus" in other topic areas and typically end up very impressed by their knowledge but put off by their elitism. So nice to meet with someone who has such tremendous knowledge and who we could actually enjoy lunch with as well ;-) "
