Testimonials

LONZA

Rich and vibrant conference, with an excellent mix of speakers from SME, mid-sized, and large companies.

BURGER KING

A very well organised conference with a great selection of varied delegates and speakers. I found it an excellent opportunity to network with new people who I wouldn’t have had the chance to meet in another forum.

AVENTIS

I have enjoyed the meeting and was in fact very positively surprised. It was very good to get this cross-industry feedback and I took back quite a few refreshing ideas which are worthwhile to follow up. This was definitely no waste of time and I will look forward to E.N.G.’s next meeting.

ASTRAZENECA

Diversity Director Research & Development

The presentations were of very high quality and the atmosphere was one of inclusion rather than competition. The openness with which information was exchanged was unusual and this was critical to the effectiveness of the conference. The audience had as much to contribute as the presenters and it was a refreshing change that they were not only 'talked at' but 'listened to'.

It’s a nice way to become more open. And being open is a promise for innovation

SABIC PETROCHEMICALS
