2013 Global TapRooT® Summit: Let Me Know What You Thought…

Here’s a message that I received this weekend (the Summit was last week) from Gard Clark …


I mentioned to Ken and Ed, that over the last 6 years as a Major Program Manager in the navy I have been a “professional conference attendee” (and presenter).

Out of the 25 conferences I have attended in that period, the TapRooT Summit was the best organized.  I commend you and your staff on the excellent thought and effort that went into the Summit preparation.

The choice of keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and pre-summit courses complemented each other to pass on significant and targeted knowledge over the week to meet attendees’ specific needs.

And it was fun!

Please feel free to pass on my thoughts as you see fit.



I’ve been to every Summit (I organize them) and for me, it was the best Summit ever.

The Keynote Speakers were very motivational.

I met new TapRooT® Users with great stories to tell.

I had some really interesting discussions about using TapRooT® to solve problems.

I had many Summit participants stop me to tell me how many practical ideas they were taking home.

And I had great fun at the Wednesday night reception with Carl Dixon (great Canadian rocker) and at the Friday afternoon Charity Golf Tournament (where we came in last but had great fun with my team).

I’ve been exhausted this weekend but I’m headed back to work to start planning the 2014 Global TapRooT® Summit that will be held the week of April 7-11 near Austin, Texas. Put the dates on your calendar and plan to be there!

Alright … What about the rest of the Summit participants? What did you think? Click on the comments link below and tell me what you thought of your Summit experience?
