Helping You Navigate During Unprecedented Times—No Travel Required
“When you work in academia, many times you feel certain events only happen to you. After this conference, I left feeling supported, not isolated, and the other attendees confirmed they also experience the same occurrences I do. The conference content was outstanding, and the opportunity to network with others in academia was amazing!”
—Margaret Vivoda, PhD, MBA, Dean of Academic Affairs, Keiser University, Daytona Beach Campus, 2018 Conference Attendee
