"I often find that what starts as a casual conversation over a cup of coffee ends up being really valuable. I might gain a useful insight or hear an alternative view on a current issue, pick up the germ of an idea that I can adapt and develop for my own use."

Andrew Savage, MD
Mid Kent Electrical

"Time spent with the AEMT is always a learning opportunity."
