Margaret was an excellent speaker, going well beyond the opening remarks I was expecting and drawing out a really good range of points from guests such that we had a lively and in-depth discussion around the hot topic of disruption.


Margaret Doyle (Partner and head of FS Insight for Deloitte UK) was our superb guest speaker.

  1. “Margaret’s thoughts and management of the conversation were indeed great. Hope to see you at a future event.”
  2. “Margaret indeed gave a very interesting presentation and led a good follow-up discussion.”
  3. “Margaret was an excellent speaker, going well beyond the opening remarks I was expecting and drawing out a really good range of points from guests such that we had a lively and in-depth discussion around the hot topic of disruption.”
  4. “Margaret was a tireless facilitator and I will send her a separate note. Thank you again.”
