Past Attendee Comments:
“I have taken many classes, studied for many exams, gone to many seminars with sessions and presentations and roundtables and breakout sessions and the like, but I have to say, the session/presentation this morning was the best one I have ever attended in my entire life, and I’m not kidding either….so many lights went on during the presentation and such a clear vision of some things developed that I wondered how I had never seen it before…”
-Chief Actuary, Pilot Presentation, December 2011
“I lead a Division that manufactures and sells various specialty insurance products…I would absolutely recommend it to others. This is the way of the future and where the current environment is and unless you understand Social Technologies and how to leverage it, you’ll be left behind. I think it’s in every business leader’s interest to learn about it and execute on it.”
- Marketing VP, Columbus, March 2012
“I’m just scratching the surface regarding Social Technology and the application of it. I’m immediately going to assess my sales and client services team’s knowledge and bandwidth and map out a plan to implement some of these tools, technologies and methods on a day-in/day-out basis.”
