"A very rare opportunity to discuss topical material issues with others in similar positions globally. It was interesting to hear that we have similar issues but other different approaches. I will take the discussions and learning away with me and consider other approaches I learnt."Mandeep Mundae General Counsel, Head of Commercial IFM Investors London
"In a beautiful setting it has been an absolute privilege to discuss real life issues with a group of seasoned legal professionals with deep experience of the infrastructure space. The format (2 evenings/2 days) is perfect and the size plus the fact that everyone attends the same sessions allowed honest and informed discussion on very relevant topics."Sophie Kaine Roy Senior Director, Legal Affairs PSP Investments Montreal
