“I am writing to tell you what a wonderful retreat we had under your leadership. As Chair of The Florida Bar’s Appellate Practice Section, I was responsible for arranging a workshop designed to define the Section’s direction for the next few years. We had held a retreat three years ago with the same goal in mind. Although we had achieved some success through our prior retreat, the experience had been disappointing. This time we were looking for someone who could relate to a group of lawyers and understand our needs.
You were the ideal person for the job. Not only are you versed in the language of lawyers, but you took the time to understand our needs. You guided us through a well organized and very productive workshop. The feedback I received from the attendees included praise for your skill as a facilitator as well as for you as an individual. We accomplished a tremendous amount in a relatively short period time and are already reaping the benefits. Thank you for making the Appellate Practice Section’s 2003 Retreat a huge success.”
