Included is a short quote from each talk that we found particularly enlightening.

Spotlight on Atlanta


Here at Neal R. Gross & Co., we like to highlight the various locations our reporters travel to from month to month. But this week we wanted to do something different by spotlighting one of our favorite places to work in in the entire country: Atlanta, Georgia. There’s so much to see and do in Atlanta and the surrounding area that we can only mention a few of our favorites in this short piece, and we can tell you right off the bat that this blog does not do justice to everything this city has to offer.
