Agenda

JumpStarts cover a wide range of topics and application features. Each full day of a JumpStart is a full day (eight hours) and a 1/2-day JumpStart can easily take four hours. Please plan accordingly when setting start and stop times. I’ll be there the entire time and if time allows I have no problem staying longer to make sure we cover everything. Don’t plan on a 9:00 a.m. start time if you plan to leave by 3:30 p.m.—we can start at 7:00 a.m. if you’d prefer.
