Are you a duck, an elephant or a mouse?

Last week, 50 ladies joined us as we celebrated Cinco De Mayo with some Americanized Hispanic cuisine and exchanged “Happy Mother’s Day” between many of our mothers!


This month, our speaker was Sindy Martin.  Sindy was entertaining, interactive and candid.  She brought to light the importance of some of the small details to our professional image and gave tips to how we can tweak some of these learned or inherited habits.  Sindy had the room in a roaring laugh with a three minute video on the 10 worst handshakes; from the sweaty handshake, to the ghost, to the worst offender… the lingerer.
