Thank you for putting the conference together!!

Keep up the excellent work Danny ! We need you🌞 Brian

Great sessions. I appreciated this was held on a Saturday.

Thank you Danny for offering this opportunity! It is appreciated!

Sound cut out entirely for the final 2/3’s of the last presentation

Thank you for the opportunity to access this information in these difficult times

Thank you Danny 😊 👍 for a great virtual conference and awesome learning experience!

I believe the sessions would be more interactive if all of the presenters were on webcam.

I am very much looking forward to the replays of the sessions I missed due to being at my job!

I think there should be at least 30 minutes between each session. The 15 minute breaks felt rushed.

I am glad to have had the opportunity to earn continuing education hours at my home. I would attend again.

I had trouble with the Webinar, getting connected but I think it might have been my inexperience with this.

Great Spring Conference overall!! Thank you for your hard work to keep this going for therapist during this time!!

Thank you, Danny and all of the other presenters for taking time to continue to educate us during the current pandemic.

This conference was a fantastic learning experience for me, and a wonderful way to earn CEUs when an in-person conference is not possible at this time.

I really liked this webinar! This was my first time earning CEUs from Rec Therapy Today and I had a great experience while learning a lot about our field.

Would be nice if the comments went directly to presenter so they could respond while they are presenting to make more of a dialogue and interactive. I totally understand how tricky technology is so this may not be possible.

I think these webinars are very beneficial by helping getting the main points across. We should defiantly have more webinars like today because I would defiantly be an attendee. Today was nothing but a good experience for me!
