Basics of evaluation
Highlight was hearing two experts from the Big 4 speak on what they do all day everyday. They were very transparent in their methodologies, etc. I honestly walked away learning more about what they do. Opened my eyes with a few great examples. Great value for price (free). Slightly new experience in Melbourne: Very techy vibe, shared space. People preparing their lunches during the presentation in the kitchen.
