Testimonials

Great invite! Great participants, panelists and vendors. Great location! Loved being away from the strip in Las Vegas. Great food as well.”

Iris Drayton-Spann, Vice President of Human Resources, Goodwill Industries International, Inc.

 

“I thought it was a great event to connect with senior leadership individuals and meet with vendors that can help with specific areas.”

Tara Wilburn, Vice President of Human Resources, Crown Brands LLC

 

“I really enjoyed being around such high level of HR executives.”

Heather Duckworth, Director, Human Resources, JNR Incorporated

 

Overall, the event was great. As it was basically free, I did not have high expectations, but you I was pleasantly surprised. For me, the networking and vendor meetings were actually pretty valuable, but overall the staff were exceptional and it had a really nice group of attendees with great knowledge. I enjoyed that the most.”

Melissa Kammer, Director of Human Resources-Mid-Atlantic Division, NAPA Management Services

 

This was such a great event. Everyone was engaged and truly exceptional!”

Gigi Dryer, Vice President, Dana Innovations

 

“I already have two conferences I attend regularly. So I had to squeeze this one in and the timing was less than ideal. However the low cost of the CPE offered justification. Limiting attendance to senior-level executives helped to ensure that the topics would of value. Also, the advertised topics were more about strategy, execution and technology than the other two conferences. This made it worthwhile to attend.”

Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, CFO

 

“I really like the format. The biggest benefit is being able to explore a variety of different vendors at one location over a short period of time.”

Swiss Valley Farms Cooperative, CFO

 

“This was my first conference and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Its probably the best conference I have been to in the last 10 years.”

MedQuest Associates, Controller

 

“Learned so much more than at a traditional trade show, loved having the one on one interaction and having some knowledge provided ahead of time, many vendors customized their presentations based on company type/size and it was very helpful. Much more likely to follow up with vendors with this format than traditional trade show.”

Dunnhumby, Commercial Finance Manager

 

“Through one-on-one meetings, I was able to discover new vendors which would traditionally be overlooked.”

City of Dekalb, Senior Accountant

 

“Well planned and executed. This was the first event I have participated in but I'm looking forward to future events.”

Kount Inc., VP of Finance

 

"One of the best CFO conferences I've attended as it is geared to companies and CFOs of mid-market vs. Fortune 500 which is very important."

CFO/SVP Corporate Finance and Business Intelligence, Greendot

 

"The pace, quality of topics and vendors, and cost would bring me back."

CFO, Republic Plastics, Ltd.

 

"This is a very unique conference in its setup, especially scheduling appointments with the solution providers. Much better than other programs I have attended where it is mass hysteria with people just stopping at booths for short conversations. Excellent idea. I think helping with the complimentary pass for one of the hotel nights is also excellent and something I would continue."

Vice President - CFO, Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum

 

"Nice blend of topics and seminars and arranging the vendor meetings was great."

CFO, TV4 Entertainment

 

"I like the day and a half format with a location next to the airport. The format was actually quite good."

CFO, RMS

 

"Very well run conference, highly professional appearance throughout. Would highly recommend."

CFO, Aspen Custom Trailers

 

"One of the more well designed summits I have attended."
