Thank you very much indeed for your significant help and support - as a result of your guidance I felt incredibly confident in submitting my business plan and then giving my presentation and interview. In the days after the presentation and interview I had some very positive feedback from the partners who interviewed me, saying that my performance was "outstanding" and that my presentation was "very slick and professional" - I doubt it would have been without your advice and guidance. I gained so much confidence from working with you and I am extremely grateful.
