We would like to thank all of our speakers who joined us for the Virtual Summit 2020.  We offer particular thanks to those that joined us from different time zones at very anti-social hours.  This was a unique opportunity to bring together a phenomenal group of speakers that we would have struggled to host as a physical event.
