"Basically everyone have listed your presentation among their three favourites. Your presentation was truly inspiring and the need for such an approach that you practice at your care village is really strong in Estonia. Thank you for sharing your experience and giving us so much to think about and strive for! "

Ere Naat | Producer and organizer MTÜ Elu Dementsusega (Tallinn, Estonia)

"The feedback to the conference was positive in all respects, both among care home staff, officials, politicians, and others. It will be difficult to make big changes in a few months, but we believe that we were able to inspire the participants and motivate politicians to keep working on the subject. You definitely played a big part in that."

"Iris, your talk was extremely inspiring, having captivated our students and made us think outside the box, to be and to do more for the people around us, as individuals and as future medical doctors. I really have no words to express my gratitude and the gratitude of all the organizing committee to you for accepting our invitation and sharing the concept of The Hogeweyk with us."

Vivien Lai | President, Alberta Association on Gerontology, Calgary, Canada

"The event was very successful in our eyes as many of our valued contacts were in attendance and were very interested in what you had to say. We could tell by how they mobbed you at the end, and by the number of questions we unfortunately didn’t have time to answer, that they were very engaged."

Theresa Frazao | Development Coordinator Events, Alzheimer Society of B.C., Vancouver, Canada

"Jannette, you were a real star at the Medical Innovations Summit. The Royal Society of Medicine is fortunate to have hosted you as a speaker. Several people, including the Society’s President-Elect, commented to me what a capable, lucid, thoughtful and inspirational presentation you made."
