Your presentation at the WEX meeting really inspired me. It was a pleasure meeting and chatting with you. The points you were making made a lot of sense and they are some of the ideas I’ve been trying to educate my clients and prospects on. Your presentation confirmed many of my marketing beliefs and ideas. So I’m moving forward with renewed confidence. Thank you.
