What a great venue and unique event! What I loved was not only the venue and the boat cruise (of course!) but our 1:1 meetings with decision makers.

Mindfluence conferences are unlike any other conferences I've attended. Rather than creating a cattle call, they keep the attendee list short and create a highly immersive experience. The format is fun, and is designed to promote dialogue and to keep attendees engaged. I look forward to participating in many more Mindfluence events!!

Great format. Busy, but not rushed. 1:1 thinned the crowd, but didn't empty the room. Panels are much better than speakers. Well done.

I liked the schedule for this event, which catered to our collective needs as Cyber and technology practitioners at the current time. Panels and discussion topics were crafted with quality and finesse in mind, and thanks to Gina and the team for making this happen.

Great session organized by Gina. One of the few sessions where the audience was in the right number, spaced out sessions, good time for interactive discussions, retained information and relationship building amongst delegates and vendors.
