    Dear Margret, I found your resourceful side beginning of May, when I started as project manager here in Europe. Thank you very much for your helpful and interesting topics. It’s such a valuable resource for me. I started to follow your lessons for quite a while but it is really difficult to stay on top without someone to discuss the topics and findings.
    Do you know if a collaboration room or a discussion group exsits, to exchange any outcomes?
    Thank you very much for your work!
    Best regards,

      Thanks for the feedback. I am glad that you have found the site useful. While the blog does not have a discussion page, I would recommend that you add your findings or questions to the comments to the blog postings. I will certainly respond and I am sure others will as well.

      Thanks again,
