Catlett’s presentation about the importance of family and the effect of the current economy left guests in a standing ovation.

Wednesday’s agenda was designed to give Peloton members the opportunity to host individual sessions.
“This year’s conference in San Diego gave us an opportunity to collaborate on relevant subjects and discuss innovative ways to enhance our performance both as members of Peloton, and on an individual level where we focus on the needs of our affiliates and their clients,” said Peter Holden, CEO of Peloton Global Distribution Services.
