"Thank you so much for the treasure trove of information and for what I can count as the single most interesting talk I have been to since my arrival in Singapore.   It was informative, comforting and exciting.  My husband came home and said that I seemed really energized, which is exactly how I felt and I wanted to thank you for that. I'm going to work on all of these things and I'm sure I will see you at another event in the near future."
