    Based on numerous conversations, we are going to try a new time change: 9:30 to 11:30 and I'll try to get you out just before 11:30 if possible. We'll have expanded networking time and will work hard on perfecting your "elevator speech." Each of you should walk out feeling good about how you’ve chosen to explain who you are and what you do. NO lunch but coffee/hot tea/and water will be available – feel free to bring a breakfast snack if needed.
