“I have known Cécile for years as a personal friend. When I was recently asked, at the last minute, to chair a 2-day industry conference, I called on Cécile.  In a 2-hour session, she helped me to structure my preparations, think about the nuances that make a good chairperson, and gave me loads of handy tips and tricks. This helped me massively to stay focused on the most important preparations in the remaining days, and boosted my confidence before climbing the stage.
