"If I were to miss [it], I know that I would miss out on the opportunity to gain crucial and timely insight into the most important trends���There are events that one may simply pass on, but not this one. From new ideas to crystallizing old ones, from networking to voicing opinions, there is one stop, and that is this conference."
"[Fairchild Summits] present a great opportunity to get together with key players of our industry and to openly exchange ideas in a very relaxed atmosphere. We all need this."
"This was my first CEO Summit [and it] was a career-changing experience for me. It truly challenged me to rethink the current path on which I was leading my company. I came back after the Summit with a new perspective on our corporate culture, a refreshed, refined version of our brand mission statement and a wonderful network of new contacts and friends to assist me as I grow from a small to a large business. Thank you���for giving me a new lease on life!"
