"When it comes to executive forums, the definition of victory are three very simple tests:
• First, did I pick up a couple of real nuggets I can use in my business?
• Secondly, did I find new thought partners and contacts that I can do mental ping-pong with?
• Third, was it inspiring and fun?

The Logistics Quarterly Executive Forum aces these tests." – Tom Schmitt, President, CEO and Director of AquaTerra Corporation

Very well organized, and well communicated...so thanks to you and your staff for setting it up. Venue was excellent.
