As always, we are very pleased with Mishal’s contributions. Her professional facilitation not only made the programme run smoothly but added a great deal to the quality of the discussion. She played a crucial role in ensuring the event was such a success.

STATOIL AUTUMN CONFERENCE 2018


Mishal was, as described by our chairman Ed Anderson, a consummate professional. What struck me was Mishal’s interest in digging deep and understanding the subjects as though she had been around the industry for years. Throughout the two days we had every confidence in her ability and presence, and with whom the business delegate audience immediately connected. Mishal ensured nobody got away with a casual or throw away remark without a timely and judicious probe or challenge. We liked this, our clients did too.
