“Where do I even start!? The wealth of knowledge exchanged in the room was remarkable. I left the conference with so much information, inspiration and ideas. Each speaker brought their own set [of] expertise and authenticity to their presentation. I’m inspired to keep learning to survive the digital transformation as Amber Mac advised. And as Manjit said, let’s negotiate more because you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate for. #strikeup2021”
