“It was a fantastic, thought-provoking and entertaining evening. Five strangers with five very different, yet similar lives. There was much to be shared and a lot to be learned!

"It was amazing, I met a lot of inspiring people - talked about interesting issues, with cultural differences, perspective differences and so on."

“Would recommend to anyone willing to challenge the status quo in a creative and productive manner. I find it is perfectly suited to anyone with a rational sense of morality and respect.”

"Interesting. Thought-provoking. Challenged my ideas about myself."

“It is a delightful evening of discussion that is rare to come by in our day to day lives.

"This was my first time attending as well as being the facilitator and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and each of the other attendees seemed to have a good time as well. I did not have to do much, each person contributed positively and proactively and listened respectfully to everyone else."

“A fun event with thought-provoking conversation and a good venue to meet new and interesting people. 

"Excellent topic and view points. David did a great job of keeping the meeting flowing. Everyone participated and I found the discussion fascinating and with grow potential to observe myself as to my ethics and morals in the future! Thank you...."
