Derek’s keynote was of great benefit to a dynamic group of business leaders from across the state. We received very positive feedback from attendees who found his session informative and useful. I noticed that they were highly engaged and attentive, and I expect that these business owners will take what they learned and put it into practice as they continue to build their businesses.
