One of our best speakers ever. Michelle Gielan had us at hello with her infectious smile and energetic personality. But it was the practical ways we can put the research and ideas she shared into practice that had everyone buzzing. Some attendees said they were skeptical at first 'here's another think positive speaker,' but left very impressed and motivated by Michelle's message.
