They are the best place to meet like-minded individuals. You get the chance to build new friendships and strengthen the old ones. You could also get to know the expert better and gain more knowledge from him. The expert could provide you with further guidance and help in the future.

It could reinvigorate your mind and enable you to go to work the next day with fresh new ideas and energy. The expert could also be a source of inspiration and help you with a new approach.

This happens due to the engaging and interactive session conducted by the expert.
