Operations Manager
The Norman Home Team

"It was what I hoped for and not what I expected - most break-out sessions at events for director of operations focus on basic admin "stuff". This event had tons of hearty meat packed into it! Loved the caliber of people in the room and the convo was at the level I had hoped for."

Becky Venuti, DOO, Suzanne & Co

"If you are in the ops world this event is the holy grail. A room packed with ops bosses who are sharing the very best secrets, concepts and ideas." 

Scott Shuman,
COO, Sue Adler Team

"Being in a room of liked minded ops rarely happens. To do that for a whole weekend means you can't avoid growing and stretching. The authenticity of the speakers allows you to dig in and get the information you need to be the best you. I loved this event and plan to go back and take others with me next year." 

Hannah Perkey,
CEO, Evelo Team

"This weekend stokes the fire of growth for the Ops person. While most of it is business based, there is content to grow the individual as well. When growth happens personally and on business at the same time, magic happens"
