“As a first timer to the Slow Money gathering, I was blown away. I found the event moving, provocative, inspirational, daunting, overwhelming, and heartwarming. I left the meeting wondering what I could do personally as well as professionally to galvanize, encourage or participate in the happy, healthy, positive change that you, your colleagues, and all the participants believe in and are making happen.”

“I am not sure if you have ever had the experience of listening to a few words spoken in a certain order at a certain time and having them act like a key, unlocking deeper understanding. The event was like that for me.”
