I just wanted to express thanks for the lecture last week. It was excellent, and certainly thought provoking on many levels and I feel will have helped to generate even more energy for the seventh generation team. I appreciate the time required to prepare and deliver the lecture, so thank you. I am only sorry that I was unable to remain until the end. I look forward to hearing you speak again.

Hi John!

Is there a good time in the fist two weeks of May that we could meet to brainstorm a bit more for the Capacity steering of 7th Gen? You Emma and I all work in the Queens vicinity and were thinking lunch in the area, say Bookfinders- or OUTSIDE? could be in order for the meeting.
13 or 14th of May - either of them work for you?

Blessings, Courtnae
