What Past Participants Have
Said About the Conference:
"I had a great time at the
conference. I was definitely taken out of my comfort zone which is one
reason I wanted to attend. I networked and got to know fellow colleagues
who I know I will stay in touch with in the future."
"The conference was very
beneficial to me, and I could tell because afterwards, I wouldn't stop
talking about it to anyone that would listen! It really got the wheels
turning and marked the start of my increased awareness and improvement
of myself and my future career."
