The opening plenary at Conference was very relevant and deeply motivating. I feel the speakers had such a personal and emotional investment in their causes that truly resonated with attendees.

I walked away inspired, rejuvenated, and thankful for a wonderful experience. Thank you to Points of Light and the amazing volunteers for all of the hard work to make this happen and possible. I truly had a great time connecting with leaders from around the world.
