Website Reviews Live

Always a popular session, first presented by Liz Hamilton in 2002 at the PAII VIII conference at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, IL. This was a morning session that woke up the whole room after a rather dreary accounting presentation on Quickbooks.

In this session we pull up attendee websites and look at them together, we discuss what we liked, what we think can be improved and help make the site better. It is all done in fun but with some real take aways for everyone in the session.

Always well attended and lots of fun.
