TPG Consulting / Joint MDs
Thank you for a very professional and interesting presentation on a difficult subject to sell. When one implements projects of this kind to junior staff, they always tend to think they are being a target for retrenchment or that Management has some ulterior motive. I believe you did a good job at convincing my staff that this wasn’t case.
