"I really appreciated to participate to the B2B meeting organized by Paris Region Entreprises, It has been a useful time to present our brand new service to top level managers. As each meeting last only 20 minutes, you have to be straight and strong. You know after 5 minutes, if you get some interest or not. In our case, we have more than a third of interests with top managers. They are able to decide if we can go ahead or not. This is positive as most of the time you don’t meet this level of management. Organization is great and PRE knows what service means.""
