"I value the amazing opportunity to meet with other professional who are facing the same issues as I am. Some of them have asked and answered the questions that I am just beginning to realize I have. It is great to learn from others challenges and see what routes they have taken to get where they are now. It was an opportunity to ask questions that I have to an impartial audience."
