“2020 was my first time attending a Training Conference. I came in expecting to leave with some good ideas and some business cards. I left with a fire and excitement for my career I had never felt before. The speakers were exciting, the wealth of resources for training professionals was vast, and the chance to connect and swap ideas and stories with colleagues across industries was boundless.
