1. Margaret presented “Greed, Envy and Consensus Building” for Houston Focus on Concerns for Women on March 28, 2018. This short presentation is one of Margaret’s favorites, using prehistoric characters Lucy, Ethel, Larry, Curly and Moe to illustrate why humans evolved greed and envy, and why they often backfire on us in modern times.

2. Margaret presented a “Bridges to Consensus” training course for ExxonMobil and XTO Energy industrial hygienists on May 26, 2017. She notes, “Great group. They were such fun to work with.” Want to schedule a course for your group? Start here. Or click here for info on custom training.

4. Margaret presented “Defense against the Dark Arts of Persuasion” for Houston Focus on Concerns for Women on Jan. 25, 2017. Though the food at Sorrento Italian Restaurant was exceptional, the presentation left the audience hungry for more—more tips for defending themselves against compliance professionals, such as marketers, propagandists, and even cult leaders, who influence us below our conscious radar screens.
