A very good webinar overall and felt very worthwhile. I am really glad that I attended. After the first day the sessions were livelier, and the polls added a little extra dimension to recap and tease out some of the points made in the presentations. The discussion between the EU and US based presenters on points of divergence worked really well and made the sessions less static and more engaging.
