    It was a very informative session. Met couple of Entrepreneurs, as always good to network with like minded people. Your checklist gave an idea of how much of prep is required to grow a business. Thanks for organizing this Denis and Ben. Cheers.

    This was a great contribution, Denis. Your checklist is very good. As much work as I've put into my own investment planning process, I only got 55% on your checklist, but you gave me some very valuable things to work on!
