Valued at $2500, this course will empower attendees to accelerate their career to the next level.

“Thanks to what I learned in the course, in less than one year, I have been invited to speak at Microsoft’s annual conference to present a deal I closed in an innovative way, and I co-authored a case with my former business school professor. Now, I feel I have so many other opportunities to contribute. Dorie’s class was truly empowering.”
