Testimonials

from the 2016 Meaning Conference

Thank you for organizing and leading the last conference in Toronto; after a few weeks of coming back home in Mexico, I have been able to savor all of the great knowledge you and your team were able to add in order to produce a simple but highly effective event. No doubt all of the learnings will be very well used in our University.

Luis Antonio Gutierrez Aladro, Ph.D.

Vice Chancellor, Universidad TecMilenio

Thank you so much for such an incredible experience. The workshops and speakers were very scintillating. It was a very rewarding experience for myself and my team. We were also very honored to have been given the opportunity to speak at the conference. I look forward to the next conference.

Pei Grant, Ph.D.

Director of Research, Hospice Buffalo

I attended only on Friday, but in that one day found it fascinating, and enjoyed the presentations a lot. Much more interesting and enticing than in regular psychology conventions.

Ami Rokach, Ph.D.

Course Director, York University

I just wanted to thank you [Paul] and Lilian for a lovely, high-quality and professional conference! As I told you, I really felt at home, and I commend your efforts and impressive work to create such an inspiring and integrative [conference] for professionals.

Pninit Russo-Netzer, Ph.D.

Researcher, University of Haifa

Thank you so much for the excellent conference. As Dr. Carol Ryff so beautifully expressed, the INPM felt like “home” to many of us. The conference content itself was a head-spinner and participants were marvelous. Thank you. I look forward to my future participation.

Shizuka Modica, Ph.D., ACC
