The Henley Company’s creative little workshop has been self-producing all kinds of events lately! One we are most proud of is our Sales & Cocktails – Where Professional Development & Happy Hour Meet series. Together with our brilliant partner, The Houghtailing Group ( we have created a 6-part series focused on sales and business development training. Intentionally structured differently from any other networking event, we provide a space for engaged professionals, from all industries, to come together for productive relationship building and business development training.

On January 27, 2010 we launched our first program of the year to a sold-out audience. The Henley Company produced the event, while Ann marie Houghtailing delivered the content in a dynamic and entertaining fashion. We know when our attendees start asking when the next event is taking place before the event is actually over that night, that we have a home run! What makes the 2010 series even more exciting is that the University of San Diego’s Institute for Sales and Business Development (ISBD) ( has endorsed our concept and is now offering it as a member-benefit for their Institute students.We are excited about the synergy we are creating with ISBD!

If you know anything about The Henley Company, you know we believe in the power of strategic partnership. We have to give thanks to The Palm Restaurant for partnering with us on Sales & Cocktails. The event has found a very happy home in their terrific downtown San Diego location.  Cheers to The Palm!

Our next Sales & Cocktails event will be in late March and the topic will be focused on how to create strategic partnerships in your own business.
