    First-rate networking event, Jen! Great venue, and a pleasure to meet both of you, Rnold and Ginger, both of whom I'm sure have lots to offer everyone, as well as being first rate dinner companions!

    Thanks for the great feedback everyone, we appreciate the kind words. I appreciate hearing your thoughts that some of you may like more time to speak with everyone so we will consider this in our planning for next time. We were happy the hosts allowed us to stay after the the 7pm end time, to ensure the rest of the night for chatting, so we will focus on always having this option as well. Thanks again! @jenscev

    Today's speaker, Anthony, was simply amazing who kept the group entertained in what he had to share with us.

    Great event and met so many amazing people! Anthony's talk was awesome. I especially liked the point of asking people "what I can do for THEM" instead of just promoting my cause. I made better connections with people in the second half of the networking.

    I love today's workshop. Anthony has truly inspired everyone. You can tell a difference in the elevator pitches before and after Anthony's talk. i do agree with Richard that there was barely enough time to talk to everybody.

    When is the next event? I hope we dont have to wait 3 months.
