Have you ever enjoyed a great conversation with someone you just met, but you forget their name the moment you walk away? Ugh, this feels so embarrassing and is so common. What do you do? Do you pretend like you know it and just skip using their name? Do you tell them that you forgot? Do you run the other way to avoid speaking to them altogether?

“The impact of training can last a day, a week or perhaps a year or more. Deborah’s training was different and focused on core human values that will last a lifetime. Our engagement with Deborah has left an indelible influence on our team. After our engagement, many have commented on how differently they now approach and engage in a social setting. Everyone feels more confident, more comfortable and above all, we sharpened our appreciation for civility and etiquette both in our personal and professional lives. I recommend Deborah’s services without reservation and I’m grateful we were able to avail ourselves of her exquisite knowledge and professionalism.”
