What our
participants
are saying

This was my first time joining this type of conference. I really enjoyed it. I was a bit nervous about how it would come off in a virtual aspect as a lot of these were to be handed in groups. Everything worked out perfectly. The time just seemed to go so quickly. I felt like all of them I could listen to for full days. It would be great to join other conferences and to learn more.

Lucy had honestly the best points and most understanding for people to relate to along side Rhonda and Daniela. I was the most engaged with them and felt more optimistic. The other's were good, but there wasn't a "wow" factor if that makes sense. Patrick was great! I think definitely adding high profile assistants definitely makes you take a step back and be grateful and of course it's always awesome to just hear their views.
