- Hear from Paulina, bootcamp participant: “I’ve been to many events that similarly focused on networking, professional development, and the works, but none quite as motivating, actionable, and in-depth as the Edvo Bootcamp. I’m so impressed that Shireen and her team were able to pull off a wonderful event and foster an environment that was exciting and welcoming for us all to contribute and connect with others beyond the event. The structure and format is unique, and you can tell it was designed with the benefit of attendees as the top priority. Events that make as much an impact as this are rare, and absolutely worth the time of anyone of any stage in their career growth that has a craving to learn more and meet driven like-minded individuals.”
