“Who said you cannot have passion AND fire at a conference? Noelle Russell brought just that. The event chat was on fire. How do I know? I was in there popping off firecracker comments with everyone else as she spoke. We laughed A LOT, said ‘hmm’ when she got us thinking, reflected on how legacy gets lost when products come to fruition, and remembered why we are in the game as her experience and passion refueled us all.”
