A fantastic networking opportunity and learning experience. Exceeded my expectations!
This was my first CGTbyPMA program and I must say it was a great learning experience. I enjoyed the speakers and learned a lot that I can take back right away and apply.
Collaborating and networking with, and learning alongside my peers from across all facets of our industry is an experience that has had and will continue to have a very positive impact on my career, my colleagues and my company.
