The Slack group was SO fun!! Loved being able to ask the presenter questions right during the presentations.Sara DunnLocalU Advanced Virtual Attendee - Nov 2020
[I Loved] so many things - The ability to chat with others while watching and learning. Coming out of my cave and connecting with so many wonderful people that I have been looking up to and learning from for years. Crossing off my goal to attend an SEO event in 2020. But most of all what I liked BEST was feeling welcomed by everyone and being inspired to get behind the camera myself.Jen CurrierLocalU Advanced Virtual Attendee - Nov 2020
