Just the depth I was looking for
I came away from Nadal's presentation feeling both inspired and reassured. I had just been to two mini-talks and felt that they were far too superficial. I think it's important that we get to hear and learn from activists who are experienced and prepared enough to share in-depth case studies of their work.

Nadal did exactly this and I'm sure that his presentation has helped activists understand the full sweep of a campaign - wherein aspects such as membership building and marketing are integrated in the use of mobile activism.

 Our attendees asked why we didn't have Confabb Notes last year; it was so powerful they demanded it for next year.
