Brian’s Tips

  • 1 - Register early and be strategic about the classes you take - stay at the hotel
  • 2 - Establish a bedtime with a no-excuses policy
  • 3 - Choose your team’s classes and make them teach it when they get back
  • 4 - Visit the vendors - know/like/trust them - they subsidize your attendance
  • 5 - Come with Friends
