Dear Sofia,

Thank you so much for delivering the workshop on Prevent at the Black Workers Conference in Bradford last week. I attended that workshop and like the other delegates who attended, I found it extremely informative and thought provoking. ‘Who wants to be millionaire’ was inspirational and great fun with a serious message.  I appreciate the time that goes into organizing such presentations so again many thanks for your contribution to a successful conference.

Best wishes,

Neera Sharma Assistant Director, Policy and Research Strategy Unit
