Don't just take our word for it

  • I enjoyed the Summit. Speakers were fantastic - knowledgeable, engaging, from a diverse range of industries, and nice mix of B2C + B2B which is rare. Many thanks for having me along for the two days definitely on my radar for next year

  • It’s really impressive the diversity of speakers that have been brought up here today and the content they’re presenting. You have a really engaged audience which is nice - the questions are thoughtful and interesting and we’re learning a lot.

    Alex Silberman, Monster, Boston

  • It was super fascinating, it’s really interesting to hear from so many different industries which is not very common.  These are all very very different businesses but seeing where we overlap and where we can learn from each other I think is spectacular.

    Brian Moroz, Google, Boston

  • The speaker lineup was excellent - there were a lot of people from a lot of diverse backgrounds.  There’s lots of great questions and friendly people, interesting talks on both very practical products and more forward-looking topics

    Jerry Talton, Slack, Boston

  • One of the best things about this conference is that I am able to meet a lot of people who actually share the same challenges as I have. If you’re sitting in the office, you think about your own problem in your own box. By coming out here, you find solutions by talking to other people who are going through the same journey as you do.
