He also appreciates that the conference emphasizes the multi-faceted individual: "A lot of those things in those areas I'm engaged in don't show up in the radar of how I'm living day to day. At the conference, I can use parts of my interests that I don't use in my business life. Most people can't be put into a box," he stresses. "They can stretch the aspects of who they are at the conference. You spend your life running around to make a living--this gives me a chance to stop and look at the underpinnings of my life."
