What's YOUR takeaway?

With all the opportunities for learning at the NEDRA Annual Conference, it seems likely that everyone who attended went back to their offices with some new technique, piece of information, perspective, or idea that they didn't have before. I'd love to get some comments going on the NEDRA News Blog for a change--remember, this is a place where all members are welcome to respond to what's posted and to share your thoughts and opinions. With that in mind, for those of you who attended this year's conference, what did you take away from it? What new thing did you learn? What are you already thinking about putting into use at work? Tell us all about it in the comments! I'll get the ball rolling here:

I've been lucky enough to learn a lot about hedge funds lately, but until this conference, I didn't know about the high-water marks and hurdle rates that can affect how (and even if) a fund collects performance fees. Now that I'm aware of them, I'll be able to take them into account when looking at the compensation of hedge fund executives.

Anyone else? Share in the comments!

    I agree that Christopher Haight's presentation was eye-opening! I also benefited from Amy Gingle and Sarah Guarino's description of their Prospect Review and Strategy meetings and have already circulated some new ideas about we could run our meetings more effectively and efficiently to my development team.
