What past attendees had to say about the DRIVE/Experience
"It’s nice to have this kind of focused environment at DRIVE/ where it isn’t about broader fundraising concepts, but instead geared toward analytics and analysis, which is my career path. To be around people who are passionate about this topic is great."
"There aren’t that many opportunities to meet other individuals who are in roles that focus on leveraging data and analytics to enhance decision-making, so to convene a couple hundred said individuals in one place for two days is a great opportunity, both from a networking perspective, and a growth perspective as well."
"For me DRIVE/ was an amazing opportunity to start building my network. I have a long list of people now that I can go to and learn from, ask questions and think about how to do things differently."
"I’ve been to DRIVE/ before and its a very valuable conference for the work I do – it’s very aspirational because I see all these institutions that are doing crazy cool things with their data, and it’s great to take all these ideas back."
