Recent testimonials include:

Keynote speech at International Gold and Silver Symposium, Peru
We were exultant with your presentation that put the industry in context with forecasting. It was a magnificent overture for the Symposium. But I was more delighted to have had the time to expend with you and part of the members of my committee. It was an honor to meet you in person.
