What Attendees are Saying

“Diane's example of how to get executive buy-in was very insightful and I'll be taking pointers for my upcoming project.”

“The industry has been overly indexed on in-person events and panels, the fact that the summit is virtual makes attendance a breeze and really helps more workplace leaders learn from each other.”

“This is the first summit I've first I thought it was going to be a lot of product pushing, but 5 mins in I realized it was completely different. Lots of great knowledge, where do I sign up for the next one?”
