Join Cicely Rocha-Miller, founder of MRSter.com, an online resource for planning modern unions, and Michael Stavros of award-winning M Culinary Concepts for a fun (and funny), informative, educational session. With on-screen presentations, recorded client interviews, and Q&A, you will learn manageable steps to take immediately that will increase sales and calm your nerves about what is acceptable and what is not. Be part of the change—from thought to language to action—in our industry and communities.
