An excerpt focused on this year's panel that Dr. Homes is leading is also available for you to enjoy.
The PTW community encompasses many from around the world who use performance as a means of achieving goals. Performance, for them, is everything that a person does: humans are cultural, always in relation to other people. Dr. Holmes has used performance for its benefits in science and technology. PTW supports her in this work. Her goal at the conference is "always growth. The key to relationships is growing."
