On Thursday, May 17th at the HSMAI Breakfast meeting, chapter members and their guests had the opportunity to have a fabulous speaker - Deborah Gardner, CMP. Her program "Naked Negotiating - The Bare Bone Truth & Essentials For Effective Negotiating In Any Market" has already received rave reviews. It truly was a fabulous and captivating presentation. Deborah also had the opportunity to conduct this program in July at the WEC-MPI Conference in Montreal.
