Registration and Networking
We will start registration at 8:20 am. We pay attention to your feedback and several attendees asked for additional networking time, we will have some prizes for the networking activity (8:45).
 
Cancellation
Some of you registered months ago, if your situation changed and you need to cancel, please let us know as soon as possible as we have a waiting list and some of your colleagues would love to have the opportunity to attend. 
 
Board Break
You can participate in the activity even if you decide not to do the actual Board Break, the facilitation has very valuable information. If you already did it in 2011, you will find new learnings the second time. We will request participants to sign a waiver in the morning, please do it even if you don’t plan to break the board, every time we do this activity, we have attendees who decide last minute, which is perfectly ok, we just have to make sure you signed the waiver in advance.

The event is recorded and photographed, these videos are shared on our YouTube and other social media channels (The video presentations will be shared only with the speaker’s permission). By attending, you agree to be in these pictures.

Pay It Forward
We are still getting questions from those attending for the first time. The conference will be offered as in previous years on a “Pay It Forward” basis. For more info on how to Pay it Forward, please visit the Pay It Forward Foundation (Give to your favourite charity, perform a good deed, make someone smile). This is an honour system, we don’t need to know what you do.  Trailer movie Pay It Forward

Meals
