I want to thank you for inviting me to participate in the Business Complexity conference this week. It was really a great event and you deserve kudos for pulling it off and making it such a success. I met several interesting people there and enjoyed many great conversations. I hope this will be the start of an ongoing tradition.
Paolo Gaudiano, PhD., President and CTO of Icosystem,

Thank you for putting this event together. It was the most purposeful and fruitful I have seen during the last decade of my involvement with complexity science in business!
Oliver Brandte, PhD., President of Analyx

I cannot thank you and your team enough. I've been to more conferences than I can remember in my 28 yr. career. But I can count with less than one hand those that gave me such an intellectual satisfaction and shock as this one, and I am not a new comer to the Complexity field either. I really look forward to the next one. This is such an important, emerging field. There are so many subjects across a vast array of seemingly unrelated fields that can be united by basic principles in Complexity. Thank you again.
Ren Cheng, Senior Research Advisor, former Chief Investment Officer at Fidelity Investments.

Thank you for a wonderful conference. You assembled a great set of folks. The range of topics covered as well as the side conversations were very stimulating. I wish you and others at Suffolk the best as you continue to build this very important program.
Howard Park, Managing Director at Model Answers have laid a firm foundation for future study. Thank you for making me part of your conference. I came away with much to think about. Thanks, also, for posting most of the speakers' slides.
I was pleased to see the work on agent-based simulation. This is not novel, but it is very important to get these ideas into the "real world". Dr. Gaudiano is certainly doing that in multiple domains.
Meanwhile I derived Dr. West's "universal" growth function -- for all those species which follow the M-to-the-three-fourths-power law for metabolism. This is amazing stuff. Can there really be distinctive scaling laws for life forms, cities, and corporations?
