What attendees had to say...


I learned a lot at the symposium. I enjoyed having the opportunity to bring together so many different programs.
I liked that there was a variety of topics that was covered, but that each had somewhat of an overlap between them.



Presenters really knew what they were talking about. Very concise presentations and great examples/case studies.
