This summit has allowed me to hear a wide variety of topics/presenters that I would never have had an opportunity too.
GREAT interaction among participants...highly thought provoking presentations thus far that have facilitated that interaction!
Great conference. Love the format, the tools, the sharing. I never stop learning from these events and how simple Steve and others make this seem.
