"I truly "Appreciate" you and your organization for supporting Allen University.  Cindy, you not only interacted and engaged with our students but you provided useful material and shared your expertise and insight.  The students expressed rave reviews in the workshop evaluations.  You are a measure of success, As Maya Angelou says: "Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it!"  Please know that I look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette to better assist our students.  Thanks so much for all you do!"

"It was a pleasure listening to you speak again at the Florida Leadership Academy. You have branded yourself so beautifully and have a great talent of inspiring others; I use your advice everyday and it has helped me develop tremendously and gain confidence. I just want to say thank you and I will always remember your teachings."

"I am a USC student who had the privilege of being at your presentation. It was so great to see someone like you remind and teach us about the importance of etiquette - it does, in truth, speak louder than our words. Besides a teacher of etiquette, you are a great motivator. Needless to say, I did learn many things yesterday which will help me better navigate the social aspect of my business ventures."
