In this episode, I chat with Cathy Masrour and Craig Nicholls. This is their first time at ISTE Live so we discuss what sessions they are ready to hit, what social events they’re geared up for, and their expectations. Cathy is from Long Island, New York and Craig Nicholls came to Philly from Melbourne, Australia! Talk about frequent flier miles! I’m planning to catch up with them after ISTE is over to see what they actually got out of it. Peep this episode! To connect with Cathy and Craig, use the links below. Buen provecho!
