Symposium sessions were great. Speakers were top notch. The PM and BA talent pool is strong and well in Atlantic Canada.
John Hunter, Co-op Atlantic - Project Leader
Excellent standard of presentation and discussion with good speakers. Great opportunity to exchange ideas and network. It was busy but did not feel rushed! It was a thoroughly worthwhile couple of days that was both professionally rewarding and enjoyable - not often an easy combination.
Martin Langford, Retired Navy
The round table discussions on day 2 (were great). Keep the conference going! Was great to have it here in Halifax and it will only get better and better at this rate! Oh and I really liked the delineation between the PM and BA topics. You can only work with the content you get (or is volunteered) and I think it was managed really well.
Christopher Norman, Concertia Technologies, Business Analyst
Well run, the wide array of good speakers and topical topics. Symposium Sessions were great - because the speaker encouraged you to ask questions and was interactive. Great job on this conference. I'm already looking forward to next year!
Leanne Zettler, Team Lead, Business Analysis - Research In Motion Ltd
Networking. It was a great opportunity to meet individuals from across Atlantic Canada and share knowldege/stories. The cocktail reception, meal and entertainment were great as well as it let you have some fun with your new friends and provided more time for networking. I met some great folks and have since LinkedIn with many of them. It was so great that I hope it comes again next year and that I am able to attend.
Glenna Boddington, Bell Aliant, Financial Analyst
Sherri Crewe, Bell Aliant, Senior Business Analyst

The sessions I attended and the networking opportunities were all great.
Wendy Buhlman, Ambir, Consultant
Meeting other Business Analyst as this is a new experience (job) for myself. I thoroughly enjoyed most of the presentations. Overall, I took away great information and have read the presentations that I was not able to attend due to scheduling of the same time slot.
Colleen Kirby, Medavie Bluecross
The variety of sessions available was very good. Several different subjects that kept the whole conference interesting to me. I thought the event was well organized, moved along well and it was very interesting!
Chelsie Gallant, Medavie Blue Cross - Business Analyst
Discussion table sessions on Wednesday morning - very beneifical - great discussion & relevant.
Kimberley Taylor, Halifax Regional Municipality - ICT Consultant
Keep up the good work.
Derek Dow, SNC-Lavalin / Project Manager
The opportunity to hear/share experiences of other BAs; The chance to network with other IIBA board members and other BAs The venue worked really well, the symposium rooms were great and everything was close together, but there was still informal space to meet other participants.
Brad Beckett, Newfoundland Labrador Liquor Corporation - Business Process Analyst
Overall I'm satisfied, food was great, keynote speaker was resourceful and the diner guest speaker brought some fun.
Marc Andre Alary, Direcsys Inc. Project Manager / Partner
Networking - Many of the speakers were (not) too specific and anecdotal about their experiences, they were able to make it applicable to all attendees at a general professional level. This is a great concept and great opportunity to enable Atlantic Canadians to collaborate and network. Great opportunity to meet and talk with other professional PM's from the Atlantic region. The key note speaker raised some interesting concepts and ideas I could use immediately.
