”A very informative and interesting lecture. Easy to follow. It was a pleasure to listen to his lecture, you could see that he is a good performer and knows how to perform in front of an audience – probably due to his experience in teaching.”
”Excellent – as always! I never get tired of listening to Richard Whish. He has the ability to explain the cases in a way that everyone understands even the small details of the cases.”
