Feedback from previous participants:

“I learned a lot during the first part of the workshop and I really liked the different perspectives. It made me rethink my ‘strategy’ and I’m still working on it! “  – Christy Westhovens “ I really liked the  presentations of the different professionals. It was good to see different standpoints and expectations.  The private meetings were also good to hear and talk about my own portfolio. ” C.K.
