This is my fourth consecutive year and there are noticeable improvements this year at a conference that I didn’t know could improve. Congratulations to the Foundations team! Caron has been thrilled with the amount and quality of traffic at this conference. I thought the content of the presentations was great. I liked that there were new speakers this year. The lunch with the musical performance was one of the coolest things I’ve experienced at a conference.

Moments of Change was amazing. It was my sixth conference this year and has been by far the best one I’ve been to. The people I’ve met, the relationships formed, the love that was felt around here was like nothing I’ve experienced at a conference before. It was awesome!
