During each day’s break, you will have the opportunity to “check out” a real, live content expert from the Human Library for up to 15 minutes at a time for free, one-on-one, personalized coaching on a variety of topics. In a low-pressure setting with high-impact results, our experts will work with you to help you achieve the practice goals that matter to you.

Each time slot will have up to 15 different experts/books/topics. These one-on-one meetings will take place at small tables in the main “Community Commons” ballroom (where keynote speakers happen).
