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
As a sponsor- one of the better curated events for sure. I’d be very surprised if new business does not come out of this one!Hal Adler
CEO & Founder, Leadership Landing
I count on 1:1s with vendors to stay current on new technologies in the learning and performance ecosystem. Peer networking and panels provide candid conversations about what worked, what didn’t and why is extremely valuable. Speakers and sessions combining DEI with L&D help us integrate the two in our thinking and practices for systematic approaches to our talent challenges.Kristi Conlon
Leader of Learning & Development, DPR Construction
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
