The first time I participated in an in-person conference post pandemic, and it went above and beyond my expectations. Thought provoking agenda and great speakers.Eli Bendet-Taicher
Head of Global Learning & Development, WIX
Opal Group's creation, planning and execution of the L&D and DEI Executive Summit in Atlanta was absolutely flawless. The sessions were extremely engaging and full of information, offering best practices from top experts in the field. These people know what they are doing and have raised the bar for all other event planning organizations. Kudos to the folks at Opal Group.Bradie Speller
Director, Global Strategy Office, Change & Transformation, UPS
The Summit was inspirational, educational, and practical. The most valuable take-away for me was the network of leaders I had the opportunity to learn from and engage with across a myriad of industries. It was very comforting and reaffirming to hear from other leaders experiencing similar challenges and learning how handled, managed, and worked their way through them. The network I built at the Summit has already been a tremendous support system to me and others and for that, I am extremely grateful.Sui Lang L. Panoke
Sr. Vice President, Diversity. Equity. Inclusion, Zions Bank
The event was well beyond my expectations. The presentations and learning opportunities were fantastic. I benchmarked what our organization was doing with the other attendees and developed concepts for scoping out projects and programming for our team. The networking was phenomenal! I met other colleagues in the same profession and enjoyed the camaraderie built during the conference networking events.LynnAnn H
