Her lecture on “Mental Health” dealing with trauma felt like a well-conducted group therapy session. “We all came out of WEB22 better than we came in, at least a lot,” said one of the participants.

As all of these gems fell from various speakers, they fell into the embracing hands and hearts of everyone in attendance, who shared their feedback during and after the event. The event was moderated by arsonist, industry all-rounder Tumi Ramsden.
