It was a day of intense meetings with CEOs, CFOs, and CMOs digesting as much information as possible. The benefit of the capital conference as an investor is I choose the companies I want to follow up with and possibly invest in. The Capital conference gives you access to C level executives of publicly traded companies from a variety of industries. On the activity side, the events planned are first class. I had a great day at the Harvest Golf Course and even more impressive was the unplanned event the Capital Conference supported such as the Billy Idol concert in Kelowna, B.C. All in all best weekend of my summer.”
