 “I appreciated the tremendous depth and breadth of the material -- and of being able to get up to speed on a wide range of factors that profoundly shape this space. I think the virtual presentation made this conference more effective than it would have been in person from a learning perspective. I was able to print materials, search materials and work on multiple screens during the session that made my time learning much more effective.


I love the fact that it was virtual! GREAT JOB putting it together. Both presenters were knowledgeable and very entertaining! Being able to use the chat box for questions was also useful, felt like I could still interact with others who attended.
