This is how we originally collected our feedback, at the event itself using post it notes where attendees can leave messages anonymously. This picture is from 2017’s feedback board. All the quotes are from the post it notes we’ve accumulated. See below the picture for feedback and testimonials. Nowadays we collect feedback from a form emailed to attendees after the event.
