Q: What if I am my own boss? (Idependent Consultant)
A: Bring a SQL friend to EDMPASS to be entered in the draw
We will all be there to share our experiences, stories and to answer any questions you might have. This is going to be a very casual “round table” style of discussion so we hope everyone can attend and learn more about PASS and the Summit in general.
The Summit (for me) was one of those amazing “lightbulb on” type of weeks for me and I’d love to hear other peoples experiences and to also help get people excited about next years Summit.
