Thanks for a terrific conference!

At GPWC we’ve aimed to start conversations and light fires in people, and there was plenty  of that at our 2015 iteration. Brookings was full of fired-up, energetic people who care. We couldn’t have asked for a better result (or better presenters).

Stay tuned for a photo gallery of this year’s event and keep your eyes peeled next winter for news of our 2016 conference–our 40th anniversary!
