Vero Insurance Ltd

Jeff was superb. He was challenging and relevant to our audience. He prepared well for the talk and was charming and generous. He arrived whilst our Global Chairman was giving the opening address and listened, asked questions and made notes. He wove nuggets of information from the previous speaker's talk to enhance the talk.
