About Source 2 Pay Summit
When others may go big due to the pandemic (as in let all in to listen to people who speak) – EBG | Network go selective. Since the start in 2010 EBGs mission have been to connect people for real. For real for EBG meaning enabling peers and experts to find each other, to learn from each other, to connect with each other. This cannot be done in a too large group connecting online (or physically) – it just cannot be done (EBG think). This is why Source 2 Pay Summit have limited seats based on the number of Theme Discussions hosted. When the Theme Discussions are fully booked – so is the summit!
EBG | Network also do quality webinars open for all to join – summits is a different ballgame and you can learn from the experiences during 2020 to decide if you should join or not!
