Spring 2016 Industry Boot Camp Testimonial
“The SNA Boot Camp was very educational and eye opening. In two days I learned more about selling to schools then I had thought was possible. The speakers were very knowledgeable and the visit to an actual school cafeteria was perfect. I would recommend this to anyone who is new to the K12 segment.”
Adam Finehout, K12 Operator Specialist
