Phoebe includes question and answers time in presentations, and operates an Open Book policy which means that no question will go unanswered, is off-limits, will be laughed at, or fail to be taken seriously.
This does not mean that all questions will be answered immediately, as sometimes consideration and deep self-reflection is required which mean some answers will be sent after the presentation, either by email or a telephone call.

Who you are tomorrow begins with what you do today
Henry David Thoreau
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
“It is not the the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”
