"I love that Thoughtexchange is making this such a hands-on, interactive experience. I am excited about the opportunity to learn with, and from colleagues while actually using a powerful communications tool that will allow me to better engage with my staff and community when I return home.”- Dr. Susan Enfield
"I am elated to hear Thoughtexchange is planning a summit! I know there are other leaders around the country who believe the fundamental nature of how we lead is changing and I look forward to learning and leading with my peers who feel the same way. True to form, Thoughtexchange continues to be a leadership partner by creating this opportunity.”- Dr. Quintin Shepherd
"I am honored and excited to be part of the first Thoughtexchange summit. This is an opportunity for education leaders to discuss needs and best practices. For me to hear and interact with school leaders from across the nation on how they communicate with their employees and community stakeholders is vital to the success of my school system. Our voice needs to be part of the solution. The interactive platform used by Thoughtexchange is the chance to make a difference.”- Dr. Michael Dunsmore
"I am attending for the opportunity to listen, learn from and share with other district leaders the strategies that have proven effective in engaging our community and moving important work forward.”- Dr. Timothy Yeomans
"Thoughtexchange has helped our district communications, my transition as the incoming superintendent, and our future long range planning. This input from multiple members of the community show our commitment to collaboration and input as we lead on behalf of all of our students and staff.”- Dr. Michael Lubelfeld
"Thoughtexchange allows us to tap into the future of conversations and collaborations. People want an ongoing conversation that challenges their thinking and allows them to engage simultaneously with their peers. We use Thoughtexchange to connect to people and to ask for valuable insights about what we can do better. The challenges are great as we try to meet the needs of a very diverse and very mobile population of parents and students. Thoughtexchange empowers us to meet this challenge better than ever before.”- Dave Scanga
