The Theme was "Big Ideas"..we had 17 presenters who gave the "talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less" It was an AMAZING day where every speaker really nailed it. We also had a fantastic emcee who kept it all together and moving like a well-oiled machine. All services were donated and were coming back for next year!
