ALL NEW for 2017 — Facilitated Networking Sessions:
Bring an issue or topic that you would like to discuss that is not on the agenda. At the beginning of the day, we will collect them all and then during the facilitated networking sessions assign one topic to each table. Conference participants can then go to any table and join this 45-minute groupthink. This is a loose discussion with no official facilitator. Benefits of these sessions are a more meaningful networking experience with peers and an opportunity to dive deep and discuss issues that are important to you and may have not made it onto the agenda.
