Member Testimonials.

"It's very valuable to go outside your own industry to look at the skills and value-added processes from other areas, to see what people in other industries are doing, and how they're doing it, to apply to your own industry. If people just pick their heads up and look into other companies, there's a lot that you can adopt."
- Dennis Deering, VP, Diebold, Inc.

"Talking to peers, kibbutzing and sharing best practices -- it's very powerful. Even at my level of experience, I still learn new things when I go to these."
