"I was really impressed with how engaged everyone was and how many organizations in the audience had thought of these issues -- such as investing in small, grassroots business -- at a deep level," said Sachi after the session, noting that almost half the session was a good debate among participants. "I was especially excited by the number of attendees who were interested in social metrics, and feel like a lot of good ideas were exchanged," she noted.
