We received so many amazing responses to our CFP for the 2020 Conference. It was tough to choose!
This year, we aim to have a slightly more diverse content, we also have a dedicated MC and Time Master, and we offer rehearsals for all of our speakers to ensure amazing content for our participants. We continue to value original content, real-life feedback, and research.
