The first EAP Educational Congress and MasterCourse is finally a thing of the past with its’ 400+ registered participants representing almost 60 countries from around the globe!
I would like to take this opportunity to really thank all the people involved in the Organizing and Scientific Committees as well as the people from Paragon that have worked very closely with me and others both in the planning stages as well as in the actual realization phase of the Congress itself and above all, for having brought this event to, what I would define as, a successful conclusion.
To Paragon’s staff, with whom I have spent hours, days, weeks and months communicating by e-mail, Skype and phone, and whose attentive concerns for every aspect of the organization contributed highly to the smooth running and success of this event, I would like to extend my sincerest thank you for a job well done.
The technical staff and his total dedication, made everything run very smoothly without any hints of problems whatsoever (I have never been to a Congress where some technical problem didn’t occur!);
The registration and accommodation manager, and to the EAP Association Manager. All working together in a very enthusiastic and energetic manner that was also positively commented to me by some of the attendees.
I would like to congratulate the Paragon staff, not only for the professionalism with which they conducted their work but above all for showing a touch of personal interest, humanity in dealing with everyone and I may add, enthusiasm, for the outcome of the congress. All of these qualities certainly helped to make everything run smoothly and a pleasure to work side-by side.
Congratulations to the members of the EC, to the members of the Organizing and Scientific Committees and to the Paragon staff for the close collaboration which took place and which will hopefully continue in the future to make EAP a stronger and more respected entity both inside and outside of Europe.
It has truly been a pleasure to work with all of you.
My very best and warmest regards to all,
