“Jill did a fantastic job

of customizing training in the areas of Corporate Image, Business Communications and Dining Etiquette for new entry-level hires making the transition from college to the corporate world. The feedback we have received about her training has been great and we believe her training has provided an excellent foundation for the trainees to build their careers upon.”

“Jill did an Image Workshop for our employees and it was a roaring success!

Many of the staff came up to me after the workshop and thanked me for inviting Jill in because they felt they got so much out of the time she spent with us. Jill’s workshop was worth every penny spent, both for the information imparted and the change of attitude and awareness it created for our staff.”

“Your workshop, ’Business Communication Strategies’, hit the mark

as evidenced by the positive survey feedback and the engaging discussions that were raised throughout the presentation. I have already started to experience the beneficial effects of the workshop at work across my team.”

Answers to Smartphone Quiz:

  1. It’s okay to switch smartphones to vibrate, but even better to switch them so that no vibration happens at all. Phones usually sit on table tops, so even vibrations can be very distracting.(iPhone users – go to Settings, Sounds to turn off both vibrate choices. Android users – lower volume to vibrate, then press volume down once more for Silent).
  2. It’s acceptable to use texting abbreviations only when you know for sure the receiver will understand what they mean.
  3. Shoot for a max of 160 characters per text. That’s just a little bit longer than a tweet. Don’t make your reader scroll forever to read your entire message.
  4. Phones should never be placed on a dining table. You never want to convey that anything is more important than who you’re with. Phones can be placed on a meeting table, as long as they’re silent (see answer #1).
  5. Yes, add your name to the beginning of your message to someone new. Your name may not pop up automatically if you’re not in their phone contact list.
