"I just received my certificate in the mail for finishing the Travel and Tourism Management Program at U.C. Berkeley Extension and thought you might be interested in seeing a copy of it since you played a major role in my completion. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed your classes the very best. You have a great teaching style and so many ideas. After your sales class, we hit the road and did a ton of cold calls in Silicon Valley. I used your techniques in trying to get to the right person. We really worked the referral system. The marketing plan was indeed a great tool to learn. I refer back to my notes constantly while writing my department's plan. Thanks for all your encouragement and brains".
