“The program provided tremendous value – the speakers were both practice and industry leaders and the material was core to the issues. Nice to have practical application discussions to drive home thinking. The mock negotiation scenario was engaging, fun and challenging. It really helped to crystallize the risk allocation issues in contracts. Good environment and program set up. Solid front to back.”
