WHat did people like?

We collected feedback at the end of the workshop what people liked about it. They liked that they got to know people, that the workshop was highly interactive. They also liked that each participant had their personalized agenda and that the focus of the workshop was on merger integration only. They liked the setup of the workshop (just two short presentations, four slots for interactive workshops, long coffee breaks) and the openmindedness at the workshop.
