I wanted to thank you for your time and talent. You are very impressive. You asked what we learned from the program: My one word is Value. Value of my time, talent and gifts. What I do adds Value to others and it should be Valued! Amen! This learning experience helped me organize my mind, create a laser focused audience model, consider cooperative learning with like people. I feel Grateful and blessed.
Karla’s unique approach to events as a partnership between the host, sponsors and exhibitors provides for a beautiful opportunity to develop strong human connections with the guests, the involved brands, and our communities.
