me thank you again for your presentation yesterday.

developed a great program that logically and
systematically explains a process to build a
successful enterprise. I hope that we will be
able to work something out to bring you back
to present the workshop to our clients."

enjoyed and learned from your program. We have
not compiled all the evaluation forms yet, but
so far the positive results for your presentation

you are passionate about what you do and I believe
some of that has rubbed off on our folks who
are eager to try your process out on their next
clients. Again, thanks for all you did."
