Dear "Doc" Gorkin,
On behalf of the Human Resources Association of Southern Maryland, I want to
express our thanks and appreciation for your presentation to the group on
Wednesday, May 17th. Everyone enjoyed your humor yet sensitivity to the subject
of stress. The only negative comments I heard were that an hour was just not
enough time! They want you to do a repeat performance at one of our half-day'
sessions in the future.
Despite the shark's appearance at the end, the meeting was just what the doctor
ordered for me. All the interaction and participation was fun - humor is indeed
the best medicine.
I personally hope to be able to utilize your services for our HRASM (pronounced
Harrassem - see, we too have a sense of humor) organization as well as at some
of my employer's training sessions. As with Bell Atlantic, the electric industry
is about to undergo deregulation and customer choice, so stress is in the air.
Again, it was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to de-stressing again in
the near future.
