Kami Connect July: The Round-up

Keep reading for all things Kami Connect July, including speaker blogs and resources.

Wow – what an event! Kami Connect July was packed with even more valuable Kami content, tips, tricks, and back-to-school advice than ever before. The energy was high right the way through thanks to our effervescent host, Marcus Stein; he brought the Kami spirit in buckets; kept us up to date on the happenings; and helped connect us all from living rooms around the world. 

Thanks again to our sponsors who brought the goods–literally– with wicked prizes for our lucky Kami Connect guests (if you scored some for yourself or captured any of the event action, make sure to show us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram).  

But what really made this event special, was the absolute excellence, quality, and dedication of our speakers. We’ve learned so much in only a few hours – our brains were 🤯  ! So we bet yours were too. 

If you missed out on all the excitement, never fear! We wouldn’t leave you hanging like that. All sessions were recorded, summaries have been curated, and resources are ready to go.
