The the event yesterday went very well. Have opposing views on the Global warming / climate change issue was also appreciated. The Q&A session was handled rather well by the moderator, inspite of the occasional 'debate' between the panelists and one from audience. The audience listened to the speakers and the speakers answered their questions the best they could in the time allotted. The food was excellent and on time
The AV was marvellous - it never failed. The wireless mikes worked flawlessly - thanks again to Roshan and Ashraf.
Presenting saplings for planting to the speakers was great
The venue was excellent - it was large, everybody could see and hear without difficulty even when the mikes were not used.
The chair setting was perfect. The help from the museum staff looked after our every need promptly.
All in all - another good show by the IITAC!
