Was 2014 a blur?

Is your New Year's resolution a better work/life balance and just having more TIME?

Join NACE Chicago to start 2015 off with a fresh, cleansing start. Listen and learn from event industry leader, sales strategist, and motivational speaker Holly Rogers
Jordan as she provides insight into how to increase efficiency by (actually!) slowing down.

We will learn the science behind how slowing down increases hormones that allow the creative side of our brains to open up to ideas.  We will explore facilitating productive meetings, including who should you invite and how to be a better participant. We will identify 5 things to do every day to increase productivity. Now we're on the right track to getting that resolution off to a great start!

Join us for a Breakfast meeting on

A little about Holly....



Holly launched HRJ Development Inc. in July of 2013 with the intention of sharing her sales strategy expertise and energetic style with organizations that include start-ups to Fortune 500’s.


Holly is passionate about INTEGRITY in sales and leadership.  HRJ Development Inc. works with organizations to build winning sales teams, targeting all levels, from the executives to the sales people.  HRJ Development works with companies to design and implement Purpose Statements and Core Values.

Holly’s career began in Boston where she worked with two start-up furniture companies.  She participated in growing one company from 3 stores to 77 stores and the other from 0 stores to 33 stores. 


Holly is the founder of Women In Catering, an organization that flourished for thirteen years and became known for the fabulous events, easy networking and the opportunity for start up event companies to be introduced and launched, as well as exposure for more established event companies.  The concept exceeded expectations because the last event, in April 2010 at the Blackstone Hotel, included over 70 vendors and 600 guests. 


For ten years Holly produced The Chicago Magnificent Bride event at the Drake Hotel and the Hotel Intercontinental, which was known as the premier bridal event in Chicago.
