  • I can verify what Michael was saying at 47' 40" about being a useful go-between influencers and WTM itself. As mentioned right at the start (thanks for the name-check, guys!) I've been to every WTM since 1989, so I should know what I'm doing but when I have problems, for example getting the press registration system to generate my badge (it happened this year), the first place I go to is Michael, because i know he is regularly talking with Paul Nelson and the others at WTM and will have an answer or can get one!
    • Wow! That's a lot of WTM's! Haha yeh Michael definitely leaves himself open to a barrage of messages and emails about registrations etc. He secretly enjoys dealing with it! :D
