Dear John Brown,
How are you? I hope you enjoyed your visit to Australia.
I am writing to express my gratitude for the presentation about first aid. The members of the Green Sport Club absolutely enjoyed it. Also, I have received a lot of emails asking for more lectures in the same format like the last one, which you presented two weeks ago in the sports auditorium.
The majority of feedback talked about how important the first aid topic is for the club environment. As an example, a club member helped a pedestrian in front of the club after a bike accident. It shows how essential first aid is in the people’s life inside and outside of the club. In addition, the members learned and laughed at the same time, because you are really charismatic and know how to deal with people.
Some people started to ask about when you are going to do the next presentation. Also, the associates are asking about the next lecture to learn how to prevent accidents in pools.
I would like to thank you again, the presentation was fantastic.

Dear Audrey Sastang,
I want to express my happiness and excitement to you. All the club members liked your awesome team. We all agreed that the presentation you did last Tuesday in Sydney, at the Academy XV about "leading with chaos” was really inspiring and successful.
The talk was based on different topics, including lectures and activities related to each milestone, it was really clear. Because of the five lecturers, the audience could get many insights following the same vision. Based on the reviews we got from that evening, the stakeholders felt involved in your project, meeting each other and increasing their networking community.
I would like to invite you again to our annual gala at the end of the year. If you wish, you can present your business. Some entrepreneurs will come from overseas and I thought it could be an opportunity for your company to make international connections.
