Shhh...don't tell anyone, but I'm not supposed to be here. This wasn't in the plan, but I'm really bad at saying no, so here we are.

Great history narrative, an inspiring story

Beth nailed it! This was a very moving and inspiring talk about how her career developed through her being willing to say "yes" and step outside of her comfort zone. I was especially appreciative of the plug for Open Sourcing Mental Illness at the end of the talk. Thank you so much, Beth!

A wonderful tale of Bet’s career progression, framed as a series of happy accidents. Full of nostalgia, humor, and even the “but my mouth said ‘yes’” catchphrase

Very inspiring!

Great reminder to not let our plans hold us back!

Great story and well told. Add a takeaway to the end.

A lovely talk delivered by a human who clearly understands how much can be gained by stepping into situations that are outside of her comfort zone.

Fantastic story detailing a (unexpected) life path! Great way to start the day!

Good keynote talk to kick the day off. Entertaining talk going into her career path and made it relatable. Good examples of stretching and trying new things being rewarding.

Amazing talk and story that resonates so much with I believe so many of us. Opportunities seized and growth achieved with a simple word: Yes

Great talk showing how you don't have to stick rigorously to any plan if you're willing to step up and adjust to opportunity to succeed.

What a story, amazing insights into the paths taken.

Loved the authenticity of this talk. I was wondering what the moral of the story was - not having boundaries can be good? 😂 so I agree with another reviewer there might be value in adding a takeaway. But overall I was really engaged and it made me think about my own path and openness to new challenges.
