Have you ever been to an event where YOU set the agenda? If you have, good! If no, buckle your seatbelt! For the partners putting on this un-conference, we know it's all about YOU...so, we figured...why should WE set the topics? We've provided the structure, you and your peers will determine the discussion as a group. We can't wait to see what you'll bring to the table!
