2016 ISD Summit Recap

2016 Summit Banner

It was a memorable Summit in Savannah where we were once again blown away by Herb Meyer’s insights on the world, led through some excellent financial analysis by the one and only Al Bates, brushed up on sales skills with Paul Reilly, dressed up in our best 1920’s outfits for the closing dinner, and networked with everyone like crazy.  Check out the photos and session handouts below, and don’t forget to give us your feedback if you haven’t yet.
