HEAR FROM PAST ATTENDEES
ALI strives to bring high-quality speakers and content to its audience. Internal communicators benefit greatly from ALI because the experience fosters consistent collaboration and connection that is valuable for our industry.
For over 5 years ALI has been helping me to learn from the best in the business – now they’re making it happen in my home office. I wouldn’t be nearly as effective without their events.
The speakers were very diverse! Different industries, backgrounds, demographics – there was something for everyone!
Love the engagement and positivity surrounding the presentation Examples they shared were intriguing and I could use some of it in my office Good topics, great chances to network and learn, nice variety of food selections Meeting other people with a similar job to mine! It was great to see that everyone faces similar problems as myself.
