"I never would imagine to share a session with one of the most famous of them"
"To share the presidency of several sessions with one of my heroes, Jos Roelandt. It was like a child's dream. The first Congress of echocardiography I was attending is the one organised in Rotterdam by Jos. I was really admiring these famous people like Feigenbaum, Hattle, Kisslo, Sahn… and I never would imagine to share a session with one of the most famous of them. He was really kind, although a little bit aggressive regarding my own presentation the first time. One year later, I had also a presentation during a session that we were chairing together again. He said to me: "Excellent, you have improved your presentation compared to last year to avoid any comment from me…"."
