Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Our audience greatly appreciated the proposed conferences and forums. In particular, the theme of normality has stimulated many questions and has fueled the debate on the limits of normality. Particularly the composition of our audience with many college students but also many ordinary people as well as professionals has guaranteed a great deal of debate.
