The CDAO Exchange was an excellent opportunity to network and hear from peers across different industries. The topics covered were thought provoking, and relevant to my business needs, which is no easy feat given the diversity of businesses represented. The exposure to new solution providers was a nice change from being presented the same solution providers on a continual basis.
It was great to be able to connect with other leaders in the area, understand their challenges. However, the most relevant element was the openness to discuss topics and the support expressed from each other.
It was a fruitful and enjoyable event. Productive 1-on-1 meetings with attendees relevant and informative presentations, solid networking opportunities, all of which translated to the identification of 6 attendees interested in follow-up discussion (60% of our total 1-on-1 meetings).
