Thank you for attending wood masters 2017

Wood Masters 2017 was held November 7-8, 2017 in Chicago, IL at Hyatt Regency Chicago immediately prior to Traders Market. The intense two-day program utilizes case studies, classroom presentations and panel discussions to teach buyers and sellers how to improve a variety of skills and apply those principles in real-world business situations. 

How did it go in 2017?

Last year's course highlighted Memory Training and Advanced Negotiation skills, leading students through an agenda focused on knowledge retention and negotiation skills through:

  • Case studies
  • Presentations
  • Panel discussions
  • And more!

For those students eager to move forward in their careers, the biggest take-away is feeling re-energized about heading back to work and having the ability to apply these new skills immediately, (e.g., memory training/remembering names) whilst on a "high" from the excitement of the two days. On a personal level, I know I remembered more names than I would have without the refresher over the two days prior. - Lauren Holm, Oregon-Canadian Forest Products, Inc.
