  • The presenters were very knowledgeable in their field. I felt confident that I was receiving factual information and it was relevant (or if not currently relevant, may be in the future) to my school. The presentations were high quality with great public speakers.
  • Good range of relevant topics. Speakers didn't seek to scare but to inform and give practical and helpful advice.
