I think the conference was amazing. You did a great job. If we do a major conference in Australia, CERT would be my choice! No shortcomings that I can think off except the seating arrangements at dinner could have been better and food served much earlier.

Many participants approached me and asking more time in order to the speaker to deliberate the issue a bit longer. May be for the future event the organizer could think on this. Most of the participants appreciated on the topic/issues discussed at the Muzakarah where the organizer has outlined the new things which they could benefit much.
