  • While it’s all still hot off the press I wanted to thank Perry for his tremendous contribution to our Awards Evening. His willingness to support with whatever we needed, his openness to being available to everyone around him and, of course, his delight in delivering a guest speaker session that engaged and over-ran due to questions, was every penny what we hoped his involvement would achieve.
