  • “I enjoyed this year’s event. I liked the interactive stuff and the speakers were excellent. I liked that it was comfortable for all departments, not too technical. Understanding generations, roles and styles was done well and something any level of employee can utilize. I feel it went by fast which is unusual for a seminar. The location and food was good.”

  • “The presenters were wonderful and the hospitality was so generous. We were quite simply, pampered! We really appreciated what we learned that day. At our facility we have already responded to the new information regarding surgical smoke from the Vangie Dennis lecture for instance. We are implementing changes right now that will protect our workers.”
