Shong's boss, Pat McGovern reportedly told delegates:

“An ancient Chinese proverb says ‘Change creates threats but also opens the doors to new opportunity.’ In my 50 years of publishing, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more exciting time. Good luck dealing with the threat and making it a great opportunity for you.”
