“Deshun’s contribution as our inspirational speaker at the gala dinner of the conference was key to the atmosphere of the event. She presented exactly within the discussed frame and linked her own story to the topics of the day and the contents shared among the participants. Being simply a great speaker, she made it exciting to listen even after a full conference day of talking and listening. With facts, heart and her personal, amazing story – our audience was fascinated. Goosebumps included. We received the feedback from participants that it was a great honor for them to meet and connect with Deshun on top of that. Thank you for being part of this first Family Business Conference of ours.   – Catharina Prym PWC Family Business Conference
