Testimonial

Rebecca conducted a one-hour workshop at our Business Leaders Luncheon on discovering your negotiating personality and setting negotiating targets which was amazing. Our members said it was one of the best if not THE best program we have ever had. They liked it because it was interactive, applicable, and easy to apply in their work.
