WE HAVE UNLEASHED (April 10 & 11, 2010)! If you have not heard- we had 600-700 people there on Day 1- it was truly amazing in terms of not just the numbers, but in the different kinds of folks who showed up. The 2nd day outstripped our expectations as well, with about 180 people coming back ready to get busy with resiliency planning!
