One Response to “Quotes and learnings from J. Boye Aarhus 11”

  1. Thank you so much for the great conference experience! This was the first time I’ve been to J.Boye conference and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to my colleagues and friends. Presentations were insightful and inspirational, and there was a great deal more interaction and discussion going on than on any other web conference I’ve ever been to. The speakers and the audience seemed to mix well together, with no visible wall between these two groups, and this made networking easy, effective and enjoyable. I also very much appreciated the well-organised social events in the evening, and all the effort that went into introducing people to one another. Well done!
