"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
