To inspire our organization to give our absolute best to our audience
Quotes from attendees before and after our June 2, 2013, panel at UC Davis:
Dear Ms. Monfared,
* A panel discussion in review of impacts of sanctions on Iranian Health & Education is a very important topic and I commend you on your purpose of “contributing to the furtherance of the culture of peace through creating awareness on the impact of the sanction on ordinary Iranians.”
* I know that this will be a truly informative and stimulating evening for all who are able to attend, and I do hope you will keep me in mind for future events.
* I deeply appreciate your dedication to UC Davis and the ongoing support you have provided to our ME/SA program, while continuing to move forward with Senses Cultural’s mission to bring greater understanding about culture and humanity. Please accept my very best wishes for an outstanding program on June 2, and for continuing success as you guide Senses Cultural into the future.
Chancellor, UC Davis
* I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for putting this panel together to address a very important topic that affects lives of millions of people, not only in Iran, but around the world. I think we should think of impacts of sanctions globally, both from social and economic/cultural/finance/and business perspectives. Your panel was able to start the dialogue and we hope that the momentum can be banked on to generate additional conversations in local, national, and international arenas, so that a reasonable and socially just approach can be developed in dealing with the sanctions.
* Thanks for putting the event together. It was good and good friends attended. It was well organized, knowledgeable panelists, perfect topics, encouraging thoughts, and good cookies 🙂 But the time allocated to the discussions and question was too short although panelist were there for at least one more hour after the main program. I as someone that has firsthand business with Iran, and being Iranian in USA, could contribute more detailed discussion, but there was no time.
Also the effects of sanction on mixture of business and democracy can be good if panelist could give a clear definition of these two and its correlations. Lack of that made the audience a little confused. Again, the topic that you chose was great, the panelist were informative, I know that these two topics, business and democracy, have major impact on each other, but it should have been a little more separated to guide the question.
* Thanks so much for your gracious follow-up on a very interesting and thought-provoking evening.
* Thank you so much for your humanity and activism. Please keep going. We need more of these educational programs. Our country will benefit from similar events..
* I am so inspired by your hard work and concern for ordinary people who are suffering from these sanctions. The event was a smashing success.
