“I really liked the panel format. It kept things interesting and gave a nicely diverse perspective. I found more than one key point that I took away from each panel. Excellent topics and excellent speakers who had a lot of real world experience. I especially appreciated the perspectives of the in-house counsel.”
Martha L Rees
Vice President and Assistant General Counsel
