Feedback from inaugural first session in July 2019

"This was an excellent session and we all benefited from the interactive nature of it. Thank you. I have already shared the slides with my advisory team, and a fellow RHD student who just had his thesis review meeting set -- and I suspect he may not have all this information at his command. Thank you Prof. Reik for this extremely helpful session! "
