Presentation Title

Just in Time


After the days of the Symposium have gone by, we sometimes need a moment to reflect on what we just learned, to let it all soak in. During the week, Tom will be attending the sessions and taking note of what he's learned, or more likely what he's re-learned, or just of topics he feels bear repeating. This presentation will then re-present those topics in a different light.
