“Mehreen opened our conference with a thought provoking, engaging and concise insight into the complex geopolitical and economic challenges facing the world. The Q & A session was particularly strong with lots of positive feedback from our audience of professional investors. She was not afraid to confront them with some uncomfortable truths” Helen – Citywire Conferences

Many thanks again for everything on Wednesday. We were delighted with how things went as were our guests. Your insightful, warm and generous contribution was hugely appreciated and we could have kept the audience for a lot longer. If they had known about your sports knowledge, we might still be there…..
