Mike Kim had a tremendous speaker line up for his Influence and Impact Conference. Sure, I was one of the speakers, but that is not the only reason it was a great line up.

Michael Hudson gave insight into being a paid consultant. Jennifer McClure gave us a glimpse of the speaker life and how we can do it. Kary Oberbrunner talked about building a business off of a book.
