“Maria and I so enjoyed participating in the Kayo Conference and feel we got tremendous value from interacting with the audience during our fireside chat and during the networking sessions. Thank you for offering us this opportunity! I think you put together a great agenda and gathered an impressive group of woman who may not normally have the chance to attend a conference like this. I second Maria’s comment – you must be exhausted but you should be so happy with the outcome of all your hard work.”
