I met you recently over the weekend at the Young Professionals in Agriculture Symposium. It was such a pleasure to have you come teach us Cal Poly students. In fact, you were my favorite presenter. I really enjoyed your presentation and useful tips about business and dining etiquette; I did not know that there were professionals who excelled in those subjects until last Saturday. I have always wondered about the proper things I should have or should not have done while I was in a business environment. Now because of you, I will feel more confident whatever the occasion may be. I would like to extend a warm thank you because you just happened to amaze me. Perhaps you can come back to Cal Poly and teach us something new! I hope we can keep in touch and that I can come to you for great advice about business and dining etiquette.

“Thank you for coming and speaking at our Poise, Polish and Style event. We had such a wonderful time! A student said that she hopes you will speak again next year. Another said she learned a lot and that you did a great job presenting your materials. The whole event was great and that we enjoyed learning about the topics and how quickly we can apply them. Blessings!”

“What a treat your presentation in our Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA Managerial Leadership class was. Your energy and enthusiasm on the topic of etiquette and presentation of self was contagious! I was enlightened with some new ways of handling what could become awkward situations. The “b & d” rule has been a lifesaver! I believe that everyone should have a basic training course in etiquette.
