Highlights of Tuesday at the MDM Summit Europe 2016
Conferences days like these can be real world information overload as opposed to a digital world information overload. Phones are off. Push notifications and social media incoming are at a minimum. And attention is focussed on one speaker after another with one presentation after another.
