DiProsperoMarianne Bock, ISPE Continuing Education Program Manager, recently sat down with Former Annual Meeting Session Leader, speaker and longtime ISPE Member Dave DiProspero of CRB, to talk about his experience speaking at the 2014 Annual Meeting.

“I’ve been speaking and leading sessions for ISPE for many years.  The personal and professional opportunity and gain this offers is truly incredible.  By participating, I’ve not only been able to share my knowledge and expertise, but have also learned so much from other talented professionals I have engaged with.  I have gotten to meet many awesome folks both on the speaking panels and as session attendees. I have made lots of friends and connections through ISPE that have helped me over the years and have been influential in the advancement of my career. Through involvement in these sessions I’ve developed a long list of people to call when I have a question or need help.  This alone is worth the effort.  I would strongly recommend speaking for ISPE.  It’s a great industry platform to be associated with.”

As you can see, speaking at the ISPE Annual Meeting is a fantastic opportunity to network, share your talents and expand your knowledge. Interested in presenting at the 2015 Annual Meeting?
