At a recent client training session, Sharon MacPherson, AVP Operations, Greylock Insurance expressed the following:
"Our agency recently invited Diane in to help us with our Networking skills. The group that attended the session was comprised of seasoned sales people, agency officers and some new to management and sales. Diane was able to reignite a mission and passion in our seasoned staff and introduce the importance of these skills to those newer to the concept. Through a series of simple reminders, tools for handling difficult situations and a hands on approach, we each left feeling more confident and empowered. We are looking forward to sharing our triumphs and watching our agency grow through enhanced networking! Thank you Diane!"
At a corporate annual meeting for executives, read what Ms. Zhang & Ms. Swan, Directors at United Therapeutics, shared about their one-day training in Miami, Florida:
“Today Etiquette has an array of implications not only in our professional careers but in our personal lives as well. The what, when, how, and why becomes more about doing the right thing than the fear of committing an ultimate faux pas! Berkshire School of Etiquette’s one day of training was jam packed with instruction, guidance, demonstration, and hands on activities that our team was able to incorporate immediately. Diane delivered content within the timeframe allotted and was able to manage time efficiently even when faced with a few technical issues and unexpected challenges.
I believe the greatest surprise from the session was that no matter how well refined one thinks they are, there is always something new to learn. Diane was able to provide guidance in such a way that no one felt embarrassed or inadequate for the things they did not know. From basic introductions, icebreaking, business dress, and then to fine dining, we learned how to put our best foot forward as well as how to place our fork and knife when finished!
The curriculum and teaching style was well received by all who participated and this truly was one of the highlights or our MSL 2018 event”
