PASS Summit 2nd Day Keynote

Woohoo, we’ve made it to the second day of PASS Summit!  After an awesome first day running from the keynote, to my first session with Denise McInerney, late for my executive meeting with less than a dozen other attendees with Rohan Kumar and sessions/networking/parties, here we are for the second day of PASS Summit keynote!
