• GREAT speakers! Very impressive. This was one of the best conferences I’ve attended in a long time. I appreciated each presenter’s seminar and wished more of my colleagues had attended!
• I spoke with my team and they all stated it was the best Leadership event that they have ever attended. Considering my team consists of members from KY, WI, MI & TN that is saying a lot.
• The best bang was having my executive team together hearing the same messages and discussing them. They were energized.
