Summit7  Summit6

This was our fourth North American Summit and the windy city lived up to it’s reputation with a huge storm and tornado’s on the Wednesday night. Flights were delayed but by noon Thursday all our speakers, panellists and delegates had arrived safely.

You may have already read some write up of the event but if not we’d suggest you take a look at The Job Board Doctor’s article and also a few of our own pre event blogs – particularly Randle Reece’s one on “What Next”.
