• Mrs. Tina Hayes

    Thank you for the training class last night. Being a professional for many years, I found this class to be both beneficial and informative. Every professional person should attend this class for more confidence in social or business situations. One does not realize how much she/he does not know about table etiquette until the class is attended. This was an enjoyable evening.

    Thank you,
