Workshop Feedback:

Very good! Liked that it was a small group of attendees so that we could have dedicated time with each consultant.
Alabama Department of Commerce

Overall, a great experience! All the speakers and topics presented relevant information. The small group setting made for a better learning experience as well.

This was one of the better events that I have attended as an economic development professional. The small size also allowed for wonderful networking time with the consultants.

This was one of the best Workshops I've attended. I came back with very workable data, and that is worth everything!

This was my first time attending the Consultants Forum Workshop. I felt the networking sessions and presentations were top notch. I was able to make great connections and glean information that will be very beneficial in making short and long-term decisions!
