Annual Conference Attendee Reviews
What a pleasure to be among so many intelligent, thoughtful people who share the same excitement, experiences, and challenges in the field of technical communication. I felt like I found my tribe.
As a first-time attendee, I really appreciated our welcoming community and getting the chance to talk with so many people, from other first-timers to veterans of the field.
I cherish being able to share knowledge with my fellow technical communicators, whether during an education session, or while chatting in the hallway. Attending Summit really re-energizes me when I return to the office, so I can keep producing materials that help others.
Every session I attended was directly relevant to my work. Every speaker encouraged me and gave me ideas I’ll use right away.
I got so much more out of this summit than I expected. As a first-time attendee, I didn’t know what to expect, but I was overwhelmed at how relevant and useful the training sessions were.
