  1. Have found your website eye-opening in its scope…..will certainly still keep checking in.

    All the best,

  2. Thank you Woods. Its a pleasure to be of assistance.

  3. Will be interested to hear about the conference in Atlanta the next time I see you in London. The atmospherics here continue to be strange with Newt Gingrich on record wanting to skewer child labour laws and all the negativity toward reporting sexual harrassment vis a vis Herman Cain. Oh well…all the best.

    Woods

  4. Hi
    Can I ask how much you charge to speak? I only ask because I work for a housing trust in Manchester and I think it might be an eye opener for some of our staff.

    Thank you

    Gary
