What Makes a Conference Great?

Key Points

  • A conference should feel like you are coming home to your people. 

  • There is benefit to bringing a whole team to a conference for building morale and energy for change.

On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Shawnee Caruthers is joined by Victoria Andrews, a fellow Getting Smart-er. They’re also joined by Dr. Shameka Gerald, the VP of Learning at YELLOW

Recently the three of them went to Big Picture’s Big Bang Conference which they described as invigorating, foundational and as a “homecoming.”
