Hello Richard, I am Ogedengbe Ayo Moses.  I registered to attend the January 16 event holding in London but unfortunately, I am not going to be able to make it. However, I have a request that I will be glad to have you and the organising committee approve. Our Associate Director, Sarah Olaiya who is in the UK will like to attend in my place. I will be glad to have you allow her attend the event which I believe will allow her learn and share with the other team members at Clad Projects-Social Enterprise.

Kindly confirm approval or otherwise by emailing me here or via ayo.moses@gmail.com.

Warm regards,

Ayo-Moses
