Aboard a cruise ship departing from Long Beach, California, absent Internet connections, and surrounded by beauty and open space, this conference offers a rare opportunity to be in the moment and enjoy rich presentations and discussions about business communication topics. A major goal of this conference is to engage in more profound and meaningful conversations than are often not possible in our distracted lives on land!
All business communication topics are welcome.
