Dear Zelda,

On behalf of Motorola Inc. Cellular Subscriber Sector, I would like to sincerely thank you for such a wonderful workshop on Networking Skills that you conducted at our recent employee diversity council meeting. Your presentation style, enthusiasm and enlightening, practical exercises helped reinforce the tips and skills of successful business interactions.

I would also like to personally thank you for arranging the presentation on such short notice. You came through for us when needed and pleasantly provided much more than what we asked during your workshop. You can be assured that we will highly recommend you to other Motorola business divisions as well as other companies looking for a dynamic, exciting motivational business speaker.   We look forward to your return back to Libertyville at some point later in the year.

Dear Ms. Robinson,

The staff of European American would like to thank you very much for your presentation at our meeting last weekend. We were all challenged with the weather and were glad you could accommodate quickly. All of the staff in the crowed was very interested and pleased with the presentation.

Your message about the need to focus in our daily lives was a message that touched me deeply. My hope is that I can remember your great points and hold on to those thoughts every day. Also the deep breathing exercise you demonstrated was something that is easy enough do but we lose “focus” in our daily activities. And of course, the recording of the meeting, thank for bringing us to the world of television.

Once again, thank you so much for your participation. You are a true team player. As an old friend of EAA, we would like you to join us in our new activity on June 24th. Please bring as many friends as you want too.

Executive Director

We hope that the experience was memorable for you and invite you to continue with us, in spirit, as we continue our guess to provide avenues for uplifting our community.

All the best,

Merry Green
