We will focus on themes that are important to our community, and we will hear from interesting and influential people within it. Sharing the collective wisdom of super smart people has been the highlight of my career, and I look forward to having you all along for this ride!”

Powers is a creator and strategist who thrives on helping people learn. She has spent the majority of her career working in meetings and events, primarily serving in planning, sales, and marketing roles.
