The 10th Annual Conference was fantastic! 278 attendees, exhibitors, speakers and volunteers came together over three days to share lessons on Projecting A Difference!
Wednesday's Opening Gala kicked off the conference with Shara Fisler of Ocean Discovery Institute and Lori Holt Pfeiler of San Diego Habitat for Humanity providing inspiring keynote addresses. Thursday opened with a breakfast keynote by Tom Horn of NASA, and then moved directly to 24 one-hour tutorial sessions across six knowledge tracks – Methods, Personal Skills, Effectiveness, Coaching, Agile, and Tools. Thursday's lunch keynote was provided by Rusty Frantz of CareFusion. After the Tutorials, attendees gathered in the pool area for some great appetizers and beer provided by our Networking sponsor, Karl Strauss Breweries, to play the business card exchange challenge. On Friday, attendees dug deeper with full and half day seminars and a wonderful lunch keynote address by Erik Verzuh.
Throughout it all, multiple raffle drawings were held with fabulous prizes awarded.Many thanks to our sponsors who helped to make this conference a success: Platinum Edge, Beyond 20 and Microsoft.
