Dear Ms. Tina,
The presentations you gave were very informative and I learned a lot about dining and public speaking. My favorite part of the presentations was learning about the table setting and navigation. To be honest, I had no idea that there was a specific place for each dinnerware in a formal table setting so I really enjoyed learning about that. The tips about public speaking like showing enthusiasm in a presentation to capture the audience’s attention as well as being prepared helped improve my public speaking abilities.
I learned a lot of great tips on etiquette from your book too — one good example is this thank you email I hope.
