This was my first time coming at the ITEM Conference and it won't be the last. As a Canadian IT entrepreneur, it's important to me to network with local leaders and to build solid relationships. In addition to hosting great international and local speakers, ITEM was able to facilitate many introductions that have already helped my business. I'm looking forward to next year.
