……..this was one of the best seminars I have ever been on (and I have done several at places like Stanford, Harvard, MIT etc.). When I first saw that you wanted to pull me out of the office for 8 business days, I was sceptical (being a classic workaholic I never leave the office that long). But once on the course, I found that I was very engaged and interested throughout the entire session and I learned a lot.
I just wanted to round off my own Oxford Energy Seminar experience by thanking all of you for what I found to be the most international and academically interesting two weeks for at least a decade. However, the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend so much time with 60 people from 28 (I guess) nationalities was in itself something that I really value. I think I learned something valuable as a citizen of a dynamic and diverse world.
I find myself talking with friends, family and co-workers about our experience at Oxford and I’m amazed at how much I learned from the lectures and the participants in the conference. I am honored to count all of you as my friends; I feel much more connected to what is happening all over the world since our time together.
