Any attendees that are later than 10 minutes to the start time of any of our activities will not be granted admission to room. This is a business acumen education, and reputation protection measure to ensure an undisrupted class environment, and essential in keeping our sessions to a high standard and professional nature. It will also allow us to help attract high quality speakers in the future. Advanced written warning of late attendances are appreciated, but all attendees must arrive prior to or during the ten-minute window.
