"I had the recent opportunity to be in the audience for Dr. Lunney's ISM Lehigh Valley, PA presentation 'Procurement Strategies contributing to the Bottom Line.' From the outset of her interactive process and well-organized content, Soheila communicated important strategies and tactics, for Procurement, Sourcing and Supply Chain Management personnel at all operating levels, to make significant contributions to business P & L Statements and Balance Sheets.

"Dr. Lunney used multiple real life examples to reinforce each cost or process improvement concept and I was particularly struck by her innovative, out-of-the-box approaches to solving many of the most difficult issues that procurement folks face in their journey to improve business metrics."

"Thank you so much for providing me with the knowledge and confidence to take on the negotiation process head on. Not only did you help me with the technical aspect of the negotiations, but you also provided me with the motivation to better position myself as a buyer in the current market. Your inspiring seminar was well worth it and I recommend it to anyone and everyone that feels they are lacking the tools and confidence as a buyer. Please let me know of future seminars, I will definitely be in attendance."
