A great big Thank you to the American Heart Association Power to end Stroke. What a great idea! The Healthy Cooking for the Holidays with Chef Tre Wilcox was just fabulous! The food was fabulous and we learned so much. The extra bonus was our lessons in etiquette and decorum. No more putting on lipstick at the dinner table people! Thanks to Tina Hayes of The School of Etiquette and Decorum.
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.
Hope you are doing well, it’s been about 9 months and I just wanted to say hi and thank you again. The etiquette training with you changed my life, and my business has exploded. It all started with the huge confidence you helped me build through the training sessions. So many great things have happened to me. I hope the Lord continues to bless you too!!
