  1. Hi Alyson,

    I am interested in more information about your “Success in the Global Arena” seminars. I am the marketing director for a local boutique real estate company and think some of the topics offered would be a wonderful “refresher” course for our agents. I look forward to hearing from you, thank you!

  6. Hello and good evening. I am very interested in seeing if a mini lesson could be offered. First, I am a teacher who is currently teaching persuasive writing using the prompt, “Should elementary schools require an etiquette class prior to moving on to middle school?” We have a lot of mixed opinions out there and we are sending these up to the principal in hopes of encouraging a program be brought to the school on a more permanent basis.

    I am trying to encourage my school to have an etiquette class for their students in 3-5 grade, prior to moving on to middle school. To do this, my class has kind of become the lab rats so to say. I would really like to talk to see if I could get someone out to my classroom, during school, to do a lesson on etiquette maybe three times a week at an hour a day. Time is obviously negotiable.

    This sounds crazy, but I feel this is something that should really be looking into. I work at a title one school so funds are limited. I will be looking for sponsorship on this and really hope that we can make this happen.

    Please feel free to call me, I have planning from 8:45-10:15 and will be available after 2:45. Lets make some magic happen.
