“In my preconference Certificate I made connections with people I could go out to dinner with to discuss our hopes and plans for the conference, as well as the challenges we faced in our roles back at home. I was able to pick these same faces out of the crowd during sessions and keynotes, making the conference feel friendlier and granting me the confidence to engage with other attendees whom I did not know.”
