Seminar Testimonials"Unlike many industry thought leaders' presentations that explain theoretical but unrealistic doctrines, Lou's seminar struck a nice balance between what should be done and what could be done in the sometimes contentious, always political, corporate setting. His common sense approach of injecting sound IA principles into small windows of opportunity was spot-on."
