One question you might ask is “why do we need to go to another conference"? For us it is simple - every time we go, we learn lots of new small things and deepen our understanding. As soon you think you know it all and don’t challenge this, you lose momentum and valuable time to learn.
At this event we learned many things and we also get confirmation that the way we do many things are proven to be best practice.
These learnings and confirmations are of course very important to us, but not as important as the new friends we are getting and the ones we re-visit. We have been attending these events for many years now, and many of the people we meet here – we consider as good friends. This is the biggest reason for us to join these events, at the end of the day what matters the most is good relations. We know that good relations create good results every day. Of course, we do not only share during these events, but also, we meet between events and online via social media.
We want to finish this post off with a very nice quote from our friend Mark Rosenthal:
Now we have to shut down, they are serving food on the plane!
