I feel like it provides a perspective on common issues, insights that is difficult to gain in any other way.

    PLRB remains the "gold standard" for insurance industry conferences.

    For my first time attending I really felt like I took away many helpful points to use.

    The conference was amazing and provided top notch educational opportunities, as it always does.

    The sessions I attended were relevant to my job, engaging, and well done.
