      If you would like to experience rich networking opportunities and getting to know others in the industry, this conference is where you can do that. Opal Group does a really good job of bringing together an amazing experience. Alaina Doyle

      Wells Fargo

      This conference not only brought together impressive professionals, but really awesome people on a personal level. I have gone to many conferences only to share in small talk and seeing what someone can gain from someone else - but the energy of this conference was much more authentic. I truly appreciated all of the human beings that were in the room. Brooke Rodriguez


      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


      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

      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, Director
