The presentation by Douglas was very well received by our guests. The breadth and depth of the topics he discussed was impressive. Doug presents very easily and he is captivating the audience from begin to end. Timing was OK and there was enough time for questions at the end. It is clear that he is a true insider in world economics / politics, without too much ‘‘namedropping”, which presenters sometimes do. Before and after the presentation we experienced Doug as a very pleasant person to work with. Guests that I spoke with later all confirmed the high quality of his presentation.
