I hope you can find time to peel yourself away from email and conference calls to attend at least one of these events. Conferences are a fantastic way to get quality face-to-face interactions with others in your industry. I always feel energized and inspired after leaving a conference and ready to tackle the challenges ahead with a new frame of mind. A lot of times, a change of scenery and hearing that you’re not the only one who struggles with contract workflows, data analysis, or audit trails can give you the motivation you need.
Here’s to a great 2020!
