What Past Attendees Are Saying…

I couldn’t have imagined the networking opportunities!!! The thought that went into the seating arrangements was awesome. My networking even carried over to the airport, as 10 of us sat at the same gate waiting for our connection. I thought it far exceeded my expectations. Thank you.

The Summit was more than I had anticipated. A great deal of information was shared within those few days. And, there was a lot fun and laughter while networking and getting to know one another.
