I have been to a lot of conferences and events, and I can often find something to be critical of – specifically around ‘fake engagement/networking’ or ‘over-programming’. However, Breakout was completely a different experience. It was exactly that – an experience unlike any “conference” I have been to. I never say this to organizers - but you both deserve it …everything you did was 100% top notch and awesomeZERO complaints!!

Every single moment of the 3 days – from check-in to leaving - was enjoyable for me, went smoothly, and was super interesting. The attention to details on the program, and keeping us busy for almost the entire 72 hours (while still enjoying it as an attendee) was super impressive. The group of folks you have pulled together are amazing, everybody is very genuine, successful, smart and super nice; the local contacts and programming aspects within the community of Detroit was very cool to interact with and submerge ourselves within; the content was really inspirational and fascinating; the speakers and breakout sessions were a perfect balance, and overall, all the particulars were right on – so congrats! Very well done, and I look forward to staying in touch/involved for future trips and gatherings with this group for a long time to come.

Again, thanks so much for the invite and including me in this amazing experience! In return, my network is your network. If I can help either of you in any way at any time for any challenge, question or favor – feel free to reach out.
