You both did an excellent job setting an informal, comfortable atmosphere... A lot of us [students] were strangers but we blew right past the awkward start that most meetings have. I think this was mainly due to how comfortable you both seemed and your obvious high level of knowledge and commitment. Great work. Much appreciated.
