Delegate Testimonials

Frank Miuccio
IS Director, USC Student Health (CA)

RTM is a great networking environment. You meet others from small to large Universities. The sessions are very engaging and informational. Vendor sessions are not pushing sales. It’s you and them getting to know each other and if follow-up meetings are needed.

Joshua Tepen
Executive Director of Design & Development, Maryville University (MO)

In addition to amazing thought provoking sessions, the networking opportunities at RTM Higher Ed events are the best I’ve ever experienced. I have made some great connections and friendship's with other IT leaders in Higher Ed.

Shelly Belflower
IT Director, Weber State University (UT)

The small focused attendee groups were great. RTM focuses on delivering a quality experience. The vendor expiring was personalized to each attendee, which helped to take the pressure off of the attendee as a sales pitch.

Mo Balakrishnan
Director of Information Security, University of the Pacific (CA)

RTM 2024 Spring congress was an excellent meeting of Higher Education thought leaders from Technology and Teaching, addressing the challenges of tomorrow and bring the partners in industry together with Universities to successfully navigate the uncharted waters of AI and Cybersecurity.
