Rabih Merhy,

Absolute pleasure to present on Business Transformation at World CIO 200 summit 2019. Highly interactive and amazing audi-ence with great learnings. I must say this conference was very different than any other CIO conference. Few presentations blasted our minds while listening to people from different backgrounds relating their learning and applying those to IT. Amazing experience. Keep it up and expecting the series of such events to continue. Inspite of weather and other challenges, your team excelled in re-organizing with quick turnaround.

Praful Thummar,
