Jonathan Cronstedt (AKA JCron), President of Kajabi, was an incredible master of ceremonies with his dancing and joking, keeping the crowd energized and laughing.

Without diminishing the importance of all the great speakers and their messages to us, I can't help but love the networking at these events more than anything.
To help get my own name out there to others at the event, I ran ads with some geo-targeting combined with interest targeting for the industry. It worked! Several people reached out to me via Messenger, and I've got appointments on my calendar to connect further with those I met.
