From CEOs at the residentials to world class presenters at CMSF, everyone shared invaluable advice with us. I left the program with a new set of skills, a network of friends and contacts spread throughout the industry.
The manner in which the program is run allows it to be challenging, stimulating and above all an authentic learning opportunity. I wouldn't have hoped for a better way to kick-off my professional career.
Learning about the history, structure and current issues facing the industry at residentials and industry conferences made me to feel connected to the culture of the industry, and the members we work for.
