"I enjoyed every session I attended. Thought-provoking, evidence-based ideas challenged me. Well done!"

- Mary Lou Mackie, Kitchener, ON, Canada

"Each concurrent session I attended was excellent. I very carefully chose what I was going to attend and was not disappointed in any of my choices. The conference was terrific! It was well planned and executed. Sponsors did great jobs. Just wish I could have attended more concurrent sessions!"

- Stephanie Guastella Lindsay, Saybrook University, Spokane Valley, WA, USA

"All sessions I attended were of high quality. I really enjoyed the session on the 'Dark Side' of Leadership. Thanks to the conference team for a well-organized event with high quality speakers and presentations. The speakers this year set a certain tone which permeated the 4 days."

- Barbara Harold, Zayed University, Dubai, UAE

"Connecting with the local heritage (Bob Watts), local scholars (Nancy Adler & Henry Mintzberg), and local artists of world-renown made this conference super special. The sessions met most of my expectations. The best ones shared good content, but also allowed good interaction. Some sessions were full of surprises (the Samba lesson with Robson Marinho). Some were very scholarly and informative (Women as Leaders by the honoree)."

- Erich Baumgartner, Andrews University, Berrien Springs, MI, USA

"Absolutely fantastic! Loved the cross-section of topics and depth of topics, it was very inspiring."

- Mike Cameron, Nova Scotia Teachers Union, Coldbrook, NS, Canada

"I learned a ton at the sessions and I am so glad I got this experience! I loved being able to meet some of the authors of the textbooks I have used in class."

- Erin Coiley, Christopher Newport University, Burke, VA, USA

"This was a very good conference and the tremendous thought and effort behind the planning and execution was evident. All of the sessions I attended were excellent, whether the speakers were students or seasoned academics or professionals. "

- Valerie J. Davis, Fielding Graduate University, Brampton, ON, Canada

"The timing of the sessions was great - and I enjoyed the mix between a single topic/presenter and a combination of presenters/topics. It gave the sessions more variety and I greatly enjoyed it. I love the diversity of experiences/professions - it should be highly focused upon to ensure we have great representation at the conference from business sectors and education."

- Rachel Carpenter, Pace University, Pleasantville, NY, USA
