Attendees from 35 countries walked away with ready-to-implement strategies to create more harmonious, productive working cultures. Highlights included a powerful and authentic keynote from Dr. Susan David and Wanda Hope; demonstrations in our HRD Tech Village; engaging conversations in our Thought Exchange discussions and delicious cocktails at Appical’s networking drinks among many more.
