Tom, by accident I just happened to walk past the Hotel Ballroom during your symposium on Monday morning and stood in the back of the room. Your dynamic presentation was fantastic. I can now see why the big corporate people pay you big bucks for your expertise in the industry.

Dear Tom,

I've been at this business for 25 years now and I have seen almost everything there is to see. We do over 18,000 Gift Baskets a year. Just for fun I purchased your Gift Basket videos for my designers and these ladies have been doing it a while. They really enjoyed all the trade secrets, new age designs and especially the upscale gifts. And I even picked up some very profitable corporate concepts that you presented. Your videos are the best.
