      This experience was amazing. It was personal, conversational and relational. It expanded my knowledge and more importantly, my network. Laura Vostad

      POET, Dir. L&D

      What I enjoyed most was that the number of attendees was big enough to provide me a wealth of information, but small enough to allow me to network with almost everyone at the conference. I walked away with pages of notes, many new contacts and met some great vendors that we will likely do business with in the future. Shelby Pyatt

      Rayonier, VP, HR & IT

      By far, this was the most engaging, value added convening of leaders. It was the right mix of experience, learning, and networking. I absolutely enjoyed the Disney Tour and the book exchange was brilliant. The roundtables were also an added bonus. Sharahn Monk

      Worldpay, US Market Leader, Learning and Development

      Great event, very well organized with relevant speakers and potential business partners. I would recommend to anyone. Shawn Dingle

      Sonic Automotive, Senior Training Director

      OPAL is first class. It was the best Conference that I ever attended from the standpoint of speaker quality, organization, and venue. They really seem to care! John Barbieri

      Sompo International, VP, Human Resources

      I thought the whole conference was so well run and that the OPAL team did an amazing job. I would definitely love to attend another event! Tennille Boyer
