"I like the format very much and the ability to connect with people and companies I would not necessarily meet. Of course it is difficult to build a content which would be 100% relevant but the topics essentially delivered on my expectation.
I also like the concept of building communities. Some topics are strategic in nature and we need to bring forces together to address them"
