We attended the Australian Teleservices Association (ATA) Awards Dinner on the Friday night after your presentation and I was able to utilise all of the skills that you taught us. I met so many new people and exchanged many business cards and I would not have been able to do it as successfully as I did without your help, so thank you very much.
I just wish to follow up on our event last night and thank you so much for your enlightening, relevant, professional and motivational presentation. The feedback we received was all extremely positive so I thank you once again for your fantastic contribution to the evening.
