What people are saying:

I just wanted to say what a great workshop Michael had. It was interesting, very informative, and he had great advice for everyone. Would also like to thank you and your staff for being so accomodating and so very helpful in every way. Most importantly, everyone was so friendly...it does make a difference. And of course the food was good. Thanks for the after dinner cupcakes (nice touch). - Jane Walker, writer
