The first-ever Perspectives Conference was an absolute delight! From the intentional inclusion of well-being sessions, to every topic, speaker and talk, the entire program was compelling from start to finish. Each track was well thought out, and every talk was just long enough to be substantive, and not so long that focus was ever lost. Such a rich blend of voices, too! Excellent!

Perspectives showed me that the role of the content designer is maturing! The experience and content of the speakers in the paid sessions went beyond past conferences I’ve attended.

As a speaker I could be biased. But I am not, because I will always expect high quality and technical thoroughness from a conference to hold my attention. Perspectives 2022 delivered: I learned so much in the first half of my on-demand videos to go through and cannot wait to see the 2nd part.
