What are people saying about the conference?

“Overall, this was a very worthwhile way to spend my Saturday.” – Past Attendee

“The conference is a causal atmosphere with a variety of topics. I learned not to overreact and to understanding my children’s viewpoint.” – Past Attendee

“I am a returning attending.  The conference always has insights or nuggets I can use.” – Past Attendee

“The event was terrific.  Not only did I learn important and useful information, but I had a great time as well. Although my decision to attend was last minute, I’m not sure that there was much else I could have done Saturday that would have been a better use of my (personal) time.

The Keynote by Jeff Zaslow (The Last Lecture) was very entertaining and impressive.  Three Breakout Sessions followed that for my money, delivered on their billing.  The last session of the day brought all 300ish dads back together to hear each speaker summarize the most important points of their session.  This allowed us to get the gist of the sessions that we could not attend.

I would highly recommend this event and am including a link so that you can check it out further if you desire and perhaps place it on your calendar for next year.

My thanks to Ralph Picano for nudging me to attend.” – Gary Valentine
