Certified Public Speaker Arnold Sanow, one of 850 people in the entire world to hold this distinction, addressed a captivated audience at Grady Management's February Community Managers' meeting held on Wednesday, February 25 at the Silver Spring Sheraton.
Sanow's presentation, titled "Creating Enduring Connections", detailed effective communication strategies that can applied to internal and external relationships at every apartment community.
