I have attended a lot of conferences in my career and this is the best conference out there. You delivered – your incredible team delivered – your speakers delivered – the networking was wonderful but more importantly, the tone you set for this meeting, the expectation that it would be something special, making everyone feel so special, designed to meet the needs of busy assistants taking time out of their busy schedules to attend something that would be worthwhile – a true value add – nothing disappointed. Nothing was wasted……and besides that, I had tremendous fun.
