Good morning,

Last Friday in London, Orla Muldoon, Chief Counsel EIMEA & Asia for Archer Daniels Midland (a Fortune 50 company) gave us a very generous, engaging, entertaining and inspiring Talk.

 Two of our guests described Orla’s Talk as follows:

“Good to see you this morning Colin – it was a great pleasure to hear Orla speak – very insightful and inspiring lessons for us all!”   

“Hi Colin, thank you so much for inviting me to your LBDC Talk this morning.  As you said afterwards, it was generous of Orla to share the lessons she learned along the way.  What she had to say was refreshing, clear and thought-provoking, and was delivered with directness yet great warmth. Which is a good way to communicate with colleagues, to paraphrase what she said.”
