Feeling inspired and re-invigorated about my work. Taking new skills and knowledge to share with my co-workers. Very well organized event.  Loved the networking prompts to encourage more conversations. Great food!

    will there be registration at the door?

  • Jennie Wilburn

    No, we will not be accepting same day registrations this year. You can pay at the door but you need to register in advance.

  • Juan Fausto Ortiz Medina

    Hi there, I just found out about this event but it seems that the registration to attend is already closed. Does that mean that I need to wait until next year or is there a way to still attend?
