“Very informative! Presenters were knowledgeable and interesting. I plan to take much of this great information back to my department. I appreciate all the hard work, planning and collaboration that went into this conference, it was great!” – Sharon, SAS Shoemakers

“This was my second year attending the summit; I thought that this year’s event was terrific including the speakers, the topics and the overall flow.” Kim, Markel FirstComp Insurance

“Great experience – several sessions provided a unique perspective and/or a focused assessment of specific elements rather than a general overview of regulation and procedures. Active shooter and security presentations were excellent with practical information and real-life examples. Was a very good variety of topics.” – Don , AIG
