Steven, Thanks for getting back. Pleased to hear that you have some good pics! Everyone is still talking about our visit. Richard Tams (my boss) said ” Steven really touched us with his wealth of knowledge”. We really appreciated the way you reached out and felt the mood of the group. You really got a feel of our needs and had your finger on the pulse. Anything too heavy would not have suited the group, but you had a good balance and weighed us up well! We had a fun evening which set us up well as a group. It proved a good ice breaker prior to our hectic business schedule the following day. You had quite a strong group but you managed to shoulder on and grasp our needs! We all came back with a feeling of Madrid beneath the surface. You did well and thank you! I look forward to hearing from you, and will be in touch next time I’m in Madrid. Many thanks! Robert (from British Airway)

Our evening you was tremendously successful and enormous fun….just so typical of the Chairman! Even though I knew it would be wonderful and memorable occasion, it even exceeded my expectations. Stephen, I am truly so appreciative of all your time and hard work, not to mention the tender loving care that you invested in our evening in Toledo. You executed every detail to perfection, even your divine selection of wife-to-be and 31 lovely ladies as your captive audience. We loved the history, your anecdotes, the group picture, and your selection of taverns was the best. What fabulous food, outstanding service and fun music! Yes, Chairman, I will always be grateful for the unforgettable evening just as you will always have a very special place in my heart. Your devoted Life Member Kate Evans Atlanta Georgia. USA
