What a fantastic Watermark Innovation Conference at Oracle Santa Clara this past Friday! The auditorium was packed for our engaging keynote, panels, fireside chat and our design thinking workshop. Audience questions and comments made the event even better!
Many thanks to our sponsors Deloitte, Oracle and Massdrop, to our presenters and volunteers and to all of you for participating.
Here are a few of our favorite comments from the surveys:
• “Fantastic brain candy! I enjoyed the Innovation Conference and plan to come to more Watermark events.” – Libby DeMeo, Benz Communications
• “Leslie’s keynote was awesome and inspiring. I enjoyed hearing her stories and seeing how we all go through the same fears.” – Donna Flores, Ericsson
• “The 'do what you love' message came through loud and clear – as did understanding that failure is part of the process.”
• “The speakers have inspired me to stretch, take risks and push through to the next step.”
