It’s hard to know what to write about. Do I tell you about the fabulous sessions today, or the people frolicking in the ocean? The great networking lunch with a room full of different “table groups” focused on various topics, or the excellent dinner with amazingly accomplished colleagues and friends? Shopping at the STTI Marketplace or playing in the pool? Perhaps pictures and captions tell the story best:
