"Using Sarah Montague to Chair the conference was an inspired move. Not only did she help make the conference run smoothly and on time, but I think she gave a lot of the speakers confidence. The questions to the Board were handled firmly but fairly and she gave a lot of credibility to the event as a whole. We would certainly ask her to help us again" - Savills
