“… the program material, speakers and interactive sessions were top notch! The collective effort of SCTE and GA Tech to coordinate this program with relevant topics and materials kept our class both engaged and challenged. The program was executed flawlessly. Above all, I was humbled to collaborate side by side with some of the brightest and most innovative minds in the industry.”

" ... The content was inspiring and engaging as well as relevant to today's business needs. The faulty at Georgia Tech was amazing and provided a gerat deal of knowledge and perspective that created very interactive discussions among the class. We spent the week learning not only from the speakers, but also one another. Bringing industry leaders together for a week to share, learn, and work together was an amazing experience..."

“… Any and all of the expectations I had were greatly exceeded by this program and I would highly recommend to leaders of all levels.
