Laila was our Keynote in our senior executives meetings. The subject was entrepreneurship. Laila was full of energy and life. She brought examples, well established models, trends, execution tips, concepts. The materials were very relevant, very to the point and kept us all alert and attentive.

Kris is the best conference moderator I have ever engaged and I have arranged quite a few conferences by now. He had the Danish MR Day in a firm but gentle grip from morning til late afternoon, brought in some great ideas of his own and not the least important: the entire day ran on time (it is astonishing how many so called professional moderators who can not manage this).
