From Past Attendees...
“There are a lot of things that made my IC experience one that I will remember for the rest of my life. But the most valuable things about the conference are all the conversations that I had the honor to partake in and all the current and future business leaders that I met. I think it is one of those moments that will continue to feed into my growth and success in business many years down the line.”
