September 14th 2011 was a busy day for Larraine. She flew from Orlando to Dallas to present the evening keynote for NORTHROP GRUMMAN – at a gathering of the senior executives of their key suppliers – talking about how integrated and strategic supplier relationships need to be approached and managed more like alliances than vendor relationships.  It was a very collaborative active group of attendees with probing and complex situations and questions which led to a lively dinner discussion after Larraine’s Keynote. Larraine has spoken for Northrop Grumman on a number of occasions in the past – and is a continuing resource for the organization on these ever evolving relationship issues.
