A few Words from Past Attendees:

  • “This was excellent. By far my favorite event. I really enjoyed meeting other peers and discussing business challenges/hurdles – fantastic!” 
  • “Terrific to hear what others are dealing with and what should be on our radar that currently isn’t.” 
  • “The conversation in the roundtables was very valuable. That is what makes me want to continue attending.” 
  • “The networking roundtables are the best part of the meeting.  Having the opportunity to bring up what you do well and what your blind spots are is amazing.  Learning from others, in a non-competitive format is the best.  Being able to skip steps when trying to try new ideas works well and the amount of sharing that happens is remarkable.” 
  • “The open dialogue with participants is a real highlight.”
