Your two-day conference has given me renewed focus, great networking ideas and a solid understanding of the hiring climate in the RTP area.

Kelly

On a personal note, thanks to your work I feel like I made some great connections. And your work has helped so many make connections.

Thank you so very much for touching the hearts and minds of so many by providing a much needed, excellent conference on how to most efficiently and effectively map a return to the workforce.
