    I used to be on your mailing list while being Head of Event Operations at Incisive Media last year. Previously I had the same position at Financial Times.
    I am currently freelancing (event management) for a couple of companies and would be great if you could add my googlemail address to your mailing list. I find your weekly updates emails very useful.

    Thank you and kind regards

    I hope you are well. Thanks for all the support and advice from everyone over the years, but just wanted to let you know I recently got married and am currently living on a banana farm near the Kruger Park! Thank you for kindly letting me stay on the network for nothing once I had left Allen & Overy, but please do take me off the list and let someone else who needs it take my subscription.

    Warm regards,
