Our inaugural conference created an exciting, atmosphere of passionate sharing and discussion. We were thrilled to see not only our guest speakers, but our attendees openly express their diverse experiences and expertise throughout the day.

The recorded morning of talks (which feature the speaker’s slides) has been uploaded to our YouTube channel, you can find it here. The resources shared by speakers and attendees (including some additional from us) have been compiled and, are accessible on the links below.
