Here follow details of the formal presentations I have conducted. As new opportunities come up, I will add them to this post.
My audiences consist of industry leaders, professionals, manufacturers, retailers and retail salespeople, designers, builders, marketers and managers from the home furnishings industry [residential upholstered furniture, floor covering] and other industries. I've addressed groups ranging in number from 5 to 500, and I enjoy sharing my passion for these topics...
