[Received later:] ‘ My day with you continues to pay off. On Friday I organised a Dispute Resolution Seminar for about 60 lawyers. We had speakers from all over plus some very eminent High Court Judges. I did not even get nervous this time, after all after the National Conference with over 500 delegates, why would I?!?!’
