An Encouraging Response for a First Event

Registrants braved the traffic and even the Coronavirus outbreak that has put all major cities around the world on red alert.

Safe to say, the event started and ended right on schedule. One feedback that we received? Our event was too short.

Attendees were catered to with delicious food after the presentation for a fun mingling session. The socializing lasted longer than Josh’s talk— a pretty good sign that we covered some epic conversation starters.

Judging by the success of this one, our special projects arm will be busy bringing you more events to come. Stay tuned! It’s set to be an exciting year with more organized events marked in our calendars.
