 **** COMMENTS FROM THE 2011 SUMMIT

 I enjoyed the networking opportunity and learning how my peers address the same challenges I am faced with. I came out with many good ideas I can readily implement.

Ignacio Lalana, Reference Program Manager, EMC Corporation  

The ability to network with peers was as important (maybe even a little more) as the presentations. 

Heidi Gilmore, Customer Reference Manager, MathWorks

I say this every time - it's the networking! It's great to be able to meet with peers and colleagues and exchange ideas.

Tami Andrews, Voice of the Customer Reference Mgr, Dell, Inc.
