ProfTalks Lectures event on May 4th was magic!
We had a great day! The profs and the lectures were outstanding and the attendees really enjoyed themselves. Everyone, from attendees to professors, was very impressed; all went smoothly and we received many compliments about the organization, the venue and the lectures . Here is the ProfTalks-Program-Booklet-5 which sets out the lectures, profs bios, logistics and more!
The following are examples of comments received, one from one of the professors (all of them sent us notes to the same effect) and from attendees (per the Survey Monkey survey conducted the morning after the event on May 4th):
Professor Kislenko wrote me to say “… send you a quick note to say thanks – very much indeed – for inviting me. It was a great honour to be selected, and to be part of such a wonderful crew of speakers and a fantastic audience. I am a big believer in public education and getting out of the “Ivory Tower”, particularly in such well-thought out and well-organized forums. You have come up with a super idea and organization, and kudos to you for it.”
One student wrote: “The event was well organized and the topics were very well selected. Most of the lecturers were excellent.” Another said: “I had a marvelous time – thank you”. And another said: “Excellent day, thoroughly enjoyed the talks.”
