Why Should You Present at the Data Analytics Symposium?

Don't just take our word for it! Hear from previous DAS presenters.

"Prospect Development is my favorite conference, as an attendee and as a presenter, and I'd encourage anyone with a good idea to step up and share it! The advice and support is phenomenal and the audiences are so warm and responsive. You will learn a ton and you will enjoy it!" -Susan Faraone, Senior Consultant, Aspen Leadership Group

"The Apra Data Analytics Symposium is an excellent opportunity to connect with other professionals likewise committed to lifelong learning and shaping the future of prospect development. Looking forward to working together as we build new solutions to traditional challenges." - Rodger Devine, Senior Executive Director of Business Intelligence and Operations, USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences

"Apra Prospect Development conferences are the gold-standard for professional researchers and prospect managers. Your colleagues, your peers, your mentors are all here in a collaborative format that affords the best professional development opportunity all year!" - Katherine Swank, J.D., Senior Consultant, Blackbaud Target Analytics
