Ecology, environmental and forestry related events

We’ve been to the last two business breakfasts, myself and our Managing Director….that’s actually a lot of resource, going to something together buts its generally good enough in terms of speakers that it warrants it.

Well structured, the content was pertinent, good networking opportunity.

I think they’re great.  Very high profile.

Great event and speaker, very well organised, and I met a couple of people – so it was useful for networking too.

The timing, format and speakers are very good with excellent opportunities for networking.

It was good to meet your team, they are a credit to you, all very pleasant, and keen to talk shop so some of your enthusiasm must have rubbed off, which is good to know.

It was all very enjoyable, I have been to a few “office openings” in the past, none of which particularly stand out but I’m sure I won’t forget yours in a hurry.

More than anything I enjoyed your company and hospitality and look forward to working together on projects in the future and encouraging our respective staff to do the same.

The Ecology Workshop I recently attended was extremely useful and helped to dispel some of the fears normally associated with ecology.

The site-specific workshops were helpful and enjoyable to participate in.  I would definitely attend another LG organised event.

Very useful CPD and networking – and glad to hear that LG goes from strength to strength.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for putting on such an interesting and useful event.

The Speaker was very knowledgeable and entertaining, and I found it to be a very interesting and informative event.
