Join your fellow industry professionals for an evening of networking at Broadline Rentals in Mount Forest! We will be treated to a session on Managing Conflict in the Workplace by Neil Dunsmore. This topic is relevant to everyone and we hope to see you all there!

A bit about the Speaker:

Neil Dunsmore is a former hostage negotiator and now offers leadership programs and keynote speaking engagements. His enthusiastic character and knowledge is sure to entertain the crowd!

A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Neil:

  • Every time Neil speaks, he is raw and completely authentic. He shares personal stories that make you laugh (a lot) and sometimes make you cry. His message always has a powerful message that you can take home.

  • Neil developed and led a superlative workshop on Sales and Marketing. He has the ability to communicate ideas very effectively and his energy infuses everyone with enthusiasm. Nel was able to answer all questions expertly and made what seemed to be insurmountale obstacles, easily overcome.
