What our attendees are saying about our events:
"The webinars are a worthwhile service and I think that they provide some credibility to your organization."
"Thank you for an interesting presentation. I saw it advertised on Cuenca HighLife and I know Ashley - so it was great to hear her voice and see her - and I found the first-hand accounts of what's happening in Manta and in other parts of the country quite interesting. We're all in the same boat, but having real estate representatives on who are fully invested personally in Ecuador was encouraging."
"I have found these roundtable discussions on current Ecuadoran affairs to be very useful. I would recommend anyone doing business in-country, or living here and just wanting to stay informed about what happening, tune in. It’s well worth your time."

"Thank you for presenting a very knowledgeable panel of experts in the field of real estate.."
"Today’s webinar was excellent. Positivity is what we need, and we like hearing especially young people talk about their businesses and the potential need to re-tool if necessary to stay in business. We sort of think this is the way you stay in business, no matter what your industry is.
We look forward to attending future presentations, thanks for your hard work in producing these.
