“A.M.P. has been absolutely huge for our team members. Tara's events are designed to foster a fun and collaborative interaction between industry professionals at all levels. In addition to feeling the pulse of the management world, this is also an amazing opportunity to hear about the industry's overall wins, losses, and ways to improve. At the end of the day, many of the people are in the room to eat, laugh, and learn better ways to sharpen their skills to be the best leaders and decision-makers they can be."
