“The opportunity to connect with peers during benchmarking sessions, with a framework for the conversation, was of high value.”- IMPACT2019 Attendee

“One of the benefits of your event is that is is much more intimate to talk about compliance and ethics in smaller working groups than it is in larger mega sessions I have been to in the past.” – IMPACT2019 Attendee

“Not only did I have a chance to connect with my peers and colleagues during the event, but I also became acquainted with Tia and her colleagues.” – IMPACT2019 Attendee
