It is great to see so many people so enthusiastic, working together on their stories. We had a discussion about interview methods and it was so interactive, that is great!

The idea of bringing so many journalists from different parts of Europe itself is a brilliant idea, because people learn from each other. It is very rare for an organisation to bring such good journalists across the world to one place to talk about what they do and that is quite an exceptional thing that happened, and people that come here as participants will get a lot from that.

Thank you very much! I got back last week and have been working very long days, but thinking fondly of my time at BIRN and in Macedonia. It was great to meet you and the other journalists. You worked incredibly hard and put on a terrific programme. I left inspired, and if I can help in any way in the future, please just ask.
