Jessica: It’s just amazing. I also think the energy and just the people and the inclusion, the variety of content that was shared, and the best practices, there was so much. And I know a lot of people say that the best part of a conference is the networking, but it really, really was. The conference just felt so energizing and vibrant and electric. For me, the highlight of the conference was Roy opening up the show to Miss Athena Dion singing Born This Way. I will just… I’ll never forget how powerful and impactful and beautiful that moment was.
Robyn: So I think that Roy deserves such an amazing shout-out because both just because of his presence and because of starting the conference that way and so many just little things that he and the conference planning committee put together, it felt… You said the word, it felt incredibly inclusive. And the proof is in the pudding, reportedly 40% of the attendees were first-time attendees. So that means that to me, the data nerd in me, the takeaway is that so many people felt like there was really a place for them this year to go. And there’s a lot coming out of COVID and the numbers changing and industry trends, a lot of that stuff. But still that really percolates to the top, in my opinion, 40% of the people brand new, reportedly across the board, the energy was just top level the entire time. Everybody was super excited to be there. So I got to tell Roy, you did an amazing, amazing thing.
