First, I liked the small group, almost a one to one basis, your not on a stage addressing hundreds of people. If there
was a question, we could ask for clarification. We could talk about our specific problems. Secondly, by role playing

informative, professionally presented and enjoyed by me and my sales people." Irwin Karpay, Tampa Builder
