"It was the first time I attended a Forum, and I was very impressed, I liked the fact that all companies shared their 'learnings' & initiatives. It was refreshing to see companies that have very solid social media platforms. I look forward to attending future seminars."
"This was my first time attending the forum and I was very pleased to see how well it was run. The speakers were interesting and many if not all of my questions were answered!"
"I took away powerful big-picture ideas, rather than a lot of little ideas. I found this to be much more helpful. This was a great forum, and a wonderful series. Thank you!"
"The planning and execution of the program was flawless, and overall it was a really fantastic experience and great opportunity to network, to meet peers."
"This was my first time attending and found it enlightening. I think the strongest aspect is the caliber of people attending and the scheduling. It was the perfect scheduling as well—not too much free time so it felt worthwhile with the amount of speakers��� The organization and pre-planning was top-notch! "
