Top 10 Quotes – A4UExpo Hall of Fame

The A4U Expo was in my opinion a big success, well organised, great speakers and some really good sessions. There have been tweets demanding the top 10 quote list be published so sit back and enjoy some real classics. 


Please add any other quotes that you think to deserve to be in here that I might have missed or tell us which one was your favourite!

Comments will decide the winner!
