Giving you the gas to accelerate your business and life!

The Holidays are coming into full swing and the jingle, jangle, of jewelry, nerves, stress, parties, families, shopping and more, more, more! We live in Washington, DC, where the high-level of activity is heightened and the demands on our time, generosity, manners, charity and everything else is stretched to the limit. We will be wining, dining, hosting and attending events and parties all in the spirit of good-cheer, even if we are feeling the bah-humbugs.
How in the world can you find order in all the chaos! Our panelists will share with you the inside tricks on the being the consummate best host and guest and help you move through the chaos in style, grace and poise. We will share the insights on the perfect gift for the perfect situation and the protocol for business living in one of the most international cities in the world.
