Raddon typically hits the road in June to host workshops across the western half of the country for participants in our Performance Analytics program. With COVID-19 putting a temporary halt to these in-person meetings, we shifted our workshops to a two-day online event with more than 900 financial services professionals. A sign of the times, 61 percent of attendees logged in to the event from their home offices, as did the Raddon team of presenters.
