    Pros

    They really do let you establish relationships with the companies they give you to try to sell them as many tickets or packages as possible. And the world business forum itself is the premiere forum for top management seminars. Jack Welch is always there . They've had clinton and michael phelps lots of big names.

    Cons

    The worst part and the reason I left was because you can't make any real money beyond your base salary. If they click on the link below your email and register you lose the commission. If their secretary calls the main office because she forgot you or she's new you lose the commission. If they call in because of the blasts of spam email HSM sends you lose the commission. And if one of your companies calls the number on the mail material HSM sends out again you lose the commission. There were just too many ways they put into the system to screw you out of any kind of money.

    Advice to Management

    Take the advice of the brilliant leaders that you host! I've never seen a company with an unlimited volume of management resources not use any of them.
