Come hear 6 true stories about the November theme, “Dealbreakers”
DEALBREAKER: Noun: a factor or issue that, if unresolved during negotiations, would cause one party to withdraw from a deal. Well, that sounds neat and tidy, and pretty serious. In reality the dealbreaker does not have to be a “good reason” by society’s standards, it’s a very personal thing. What’s the bottom line? Or more to the point, what’s YOUR bottom line? What was a dealbreaker for you?
