“It was an opportunity to really go deep and share ideas and brainstorm things with people I already know.”

“What I always do is evaluate the ROI on my experience. And it’s not necessarily monetary ROI when it comes to conferences, but really thinking about the experience afterward and thinking, ‘Did I really connect on a deeper level with a number of people?’”
