“I thought having so many speakers would be a bit boring but it was really fun! Great food and really interesting speakers – some really funny and laid back – great stories as well.”
“Some of the speakers told us to come in and see them for a part time job – I did not expect that”.
“Really good to hear the life journey stories – really shows us that everyone has a story to tell and hurdles to overcome”.
