I must single out Emily Settle, who was exceptional throughout. She inspired total confidence from day one and consistently delivered to a remarkably high standard all the way through what was a difficult and complex transaction. Her grip of the issues was unwavering and her stamina to keep performing despite whatever was thrown at her was genuinely impressive.
