Testimonials from 2018 Conference Attendees:
“The Training Magazine Conference was a delightful and refreshing break from other industry conferences I've attended. The size was far smaller and more manageable than others. In other words, I felt less overwhelmed, met more people (ironically), and remained challenged to choose the ‘best’ session out of an amazing lineup. This was my first time attending. I will be back again. Bravo!"
