TMA members have not been together in-person for a TMA Annual since 2019, so Music City was abuzz with excitement as a record-breaking number of attendees gathered for four days of networking, professional development, and fun during The 2021 TMA Annual.
The long-awaited reunion was summed up nicely by TMA CEO Scott Y. Stuart, Esq., "Words cannot describe the greatness of these last four days and the sheer delight of seeing nearly 700 members of the Turnaround Management Association learn, connect, engage, and welcome so many new faces to the TMA #bigtent. We reignited and reunited, showing the best of who we are and all we can be. A thousand thanks to all who participated in person and virtually in this defining event!"
Here's what just a few of our attendees had to say...
"Thank you Turnaround Management Association for my 1st TMA Annual Conference. It was a success. I attended some pretty interesting learning sessions, made so many new connections over the past few days, and got to strengthen the ones I already had because of #tmareunited"
"Do you know what cues you unconsciously give with your body language? Thanks to an FBI agent… attendees at this morning’s session at Turnaround Management Association’s Annual conference do! Thank you to Special Guest Speaker Former FBI Agent Gregory Coleman #tmareunited"
"TMA Annual was a smashing success! It was great to see so many friends live and in person after living in a largely virtual world for the past 18 months. Many thanks to Scott Stuart and the amazing Turnaround Management Association team who seamlessly executed the conference with live and virtual options. It provided a needed reminder of how much I value the relationships cultivated through this organization over many years. I very much enjoyed the camaraderie, fantastic music, amazing food, and serious discussion regarding the important corporate recovery role our organization and its members will have as we face the many challenges in front of us. #tmaannual2021 #nashville"
"Back at my desk and can hardly believe just how many people I got to meet at Turnaround Management Association Annual in Nashville! Fantastic to catch up with old friends and new and thank you TMA for such a great event. #TMAReunited #networking"
