Featured Talks Spotlight
Featured Talks will take place each day of the conference (Monday the 18th and Tuesday the 19th), in the 1:00 – 1:45 pm ET time block.
And similar to the keynote sessions we announced last week, the talks focus on topics we feel are applicable to a wide audience.
This year’s lineup of both sessions and speakers is impressive and should deliver a ton of value to conference attendees. Register now to attend and see them live!
*Please note, the below sessions are a mix of in-person and virtual sessions. In-person will be live streamed to the virtual platform. Virtual sessions will take place on the virtual platform only.
