Summit 2016 breakout sessions

by Melanie Olsen, July 21, 2016

Adventure and growth is the overall theme of the Widen Summit this year, so we wanted to make sure the lineup of educational breakout sessions is impactful, helpful, and full of big discoveries.

We’ve made many changes and tweaks before honing in on nine chosen sessions. We’ve also added more opportunities for you to take the wheel and drive, ask questions, and experience the Widen Collective at the new-for-this-year Widen Summit Exhibition.
