WHAT PREVIOUS ALTITUDE ATTENDEES HAD TO SAY


Roseann Schmid, PE
CEO
Fisher Associates

Altitude was a refreshing, intimate conference experience.  It was structured to be very interactive providing attendees ample time to share knowledge and experiences on topics that ranked as the highest priorities.  It also provided learning opportunities on new topics.  The environment was casual and relaxed, and the size of the conference supported networking at a more personal level.  I thoroughly enjoyed my Altitude experience and will definitely add it to my annual conference list.  Looking forward to next year.

Cesar Montes de Oca, PE
President
Unico Engieering

The open conversation and interchange of experiences with other executives provided valuable ideas that we are implementing to improve leadership and management.

Heather Calvert 
COO

Altitude presented a unique opportunity to connect with other leaders in a small group. It allowed me to have quality in-depth conversations around issues that impact our firm every day, and to develop ideas for  innovative solutions. 

Nancy Keenan, AIA, LEED AP
President
Dahlin Group 

The opportunity to engage with a small group of business leaders in a casual, yet focused environment was unique to other conferences.  Sharing of ideas was encouraged and the atmosphere felt collaborative and safe.  I hope to bring an emerging leader to the next gathering and share the benefits of peer-to-peer relationships with them.
