Here's how one attendee described her experience at a recent VisionLink Accelerate event:

"I greatly appreciate VisionLink's PowerUp, Transforming the Employee Relationship. The speakers demonstrated real knowledge, and frankly, compassion for what it takes to strengthen employee connections. It was gratifying to hear their commitment to viewing employees as people, and how it is best to understand one's goals and needs before communicating expectations to teams. I will definitely make room on my calendar for more of these sessions, and if possible, attend the fall conference. What a wonderful asset!" 
- Carolyn S. Aguila, Manager of Relationships, 2nd Story
