DSEN would like to take this opportunity to thank you for attending our recent Profitable Partnership event at Discovery Point. In our view, the event was an incredible success and on behalf of our team, we would like to thank you for sharing the day with us. It was great to have the opportunity to meet so many of you face to face and it was fantastic to see so many industry leaders in the same room, networking and enjoying themselves. We hope you had the chance to meet and talk with the speakers.
