"Thanks again, ladies, for a wonderful experience! I greatly appreciate all of the work you did to modify your lessons to specifically meet the needs of our Ladies Quest students! We hope that we have the opportunity to participate in Project Promise with you again next year." -Kathy Webb, M. Ed., Special Education Student Success Coach, Marshall Middle School
"I very much enjoyed both your company and presentation. The number of questions you elicited from the students shows that your presentation was directly on point to their needs; I have never been to a presentation on campus that sparked so many organic questions. Look forward to working with you again." -Alison E. Preston Candidate for Juris Doctor, 2018 Stetson University College of Law
"The event was an absolute hit! I wish you both could have heard the feedback this afternoon…. I think half of Bright House Networks now understands professional dining etiquette. The interns were very excited, and I’m so happy to hear them discussing it within their individual departments. I appreciate your time and effort today – the branded slides were great. Wonderful job!" - Morgan Huettel, Digital Recruitment Operations Specialist, Bright House Networks
"Thank you very much, especially for your flexibility. Your topic and presentation were spot on! As Nick indicated, these soft skills are often overlooked, and so important in the real/business world. I'm sure we'll get on your calendar for our next junior class. " - Robert Tewes, CPA, Ernst & Young LLP
"Thank you. Maggie LOVED the class, and you will be happy to know that George liked the class (especially the candy). He has been very proud to stand at my chair and say, 'May I?' as he pulls my chair out and pushes it in. He is so proud. Maggie has been the manners police and is not letting him forget a thing. Clearly you have done a fabulous job!"
“We are so pleased with all that Andrew learned from the Manners Advantage classes he attended. Going into the program, Andrew had plenty of home instruction on manners, but it was practicing them amongst friends in the Manners Advantage’s fun and social setting that really made them sink in. He always enjoyed going to the classes, and improved with each one. What a joy it is to see the teachings in practice!”
