Another one of the things I fell behind on during vacation was passing along a special offer if you would like to attend the American Conference Institute’s November conference in New York on Executive Compensation, where I will be speaking on “Separations, Severances and Executive Departures.” The faculty as a whole for the two day conference is gold plated, and – which isn’t always the case when I speak at conferences – I will probably attend all of the other speakers’ sessions as a result.

Today and tomorrow, you can obtain a special rate on the conference by contacting Joe Gallagher at ACI directly at 212-352-3220 ex 5511 or at, mentioning my name as a speaker, and requesting the discounted rate.

Hope to see you there. And if you do attend, please track me down and say hello.
