Thank you for having us!   

7x24The 7x24 Exchange Atlanta Chapter had the pleasure of having Garry Connolly as our Keynote Speaker at our annual trade show and conference. Garry is a very engaging speaker and presents a well-thought-through and well-structured presentation. As the presentation progressed, the table was perfectly set to allow the audience to understand the demand, the supply, the abilities and the opportunity. The presentation blossomed into a substantive argument and realization that there is secure and reliable hosting available in areas other than the ‘usual mainstream’ locations. Most presentations that last an hour lose the audience in the 20 to 30-minute range. This presentation maintained all of our attentions throughout and we all walked away with a clear understanding of the opportunities available. If you were to host this presentation at your event, you would not be disappointed.- Scott Cockerham, CEO, Critical Components, Inc. / Executive Board Member, 7x24 Exchange Atlanta Chapter
