“It was evident that this was an economist who has “walked the walk”. His knowledge and experience was very practical and it showed. I can honestly say it was one of those “knock out” moments. I learned so much. Your students are so lucky – and those that came certainly seemed to appreciate it. They just wouldn’t let him go and he equally wanted to engage with them.”     – Doug Strycharczyk, Managing Director AQR
