2018 Education

Subject to Change

Thursday, Aug. 23
2-4:15 p.m. | Preconference Education Opportunities

Presented by Darrell Hammond, Sr.

How you were raised shapes much of how you view and interact with the world. Are you forced to work with "knuckleheads" from other generations and cultures who just don’t get it? Do you find yourself wondering, "What were they thinking when they said that/did that/responded that way?" Want some practical suggestions? If so, this workshop is for you.

Presented by Lisa Sommer Devlin and Barbara Dunn

Meeting planners don’t have the time or budget for contract legal review, so they must learn to “think more like a lawyer.” Two industry attorneys will lead groups in analyzing contract clauses, decoding language and providing insight on legal issues. You won’t be a lawyer after this session, but you’ll have a better understanding of how to review clauses. Bring your own tough clauses for class review.
