It was a privilege to attend the SEWF 2012 conference hosted by NESst as well as moderate the panel. They created a memorable event. I've recently published an article on the SEWF 2012 for Queen's Business School blog. I thought you'd be interested. The link is : http://business.queensu.ca/... more »
