What People Say

“Both my wife and I enjoyed the conference a lot. Both the keynote speakers and the breakout sessions were very worthwhile and thought provoking. The highlight of the conference was Al Stubblefield; it was an incredible motivating presentation. This one presentation alone was worth the ticket price alone.”— Lloyd Main RRTManager of Respiratory Services Vernon Jubilee Hospital
