What a great group of people!! Thoughtful, dedicated, nice mix! Wonderful connections. Loved the talks/discussions about the future of specific topics. Loved the group work around specific topics.2014 USA Attendee
The location was perfect to disconnect and relax. The number of attendees was perfect so we could really get to know each other. The small group work was fantastic and exercise like Global Cafe were so engaging and effective.Leanne J.
