I am asked to speak for a lot of organizations, and some really stick in my mind. A week or so after I was on a panel at The New York State Bar Association, they snail mailed me a big envelope containing this certificate.
It’s pretty different–gold embossed, and they also included a certificate for a free class there within a year’s timeframe.
I consider this an extra special thank you and think they have a classy operation. It’s the little thank yous that count.
Take a minute to thank someone by sending them a LinkedIn recommendation without their asking you to recommend them, for some great work they did, or a skill set they have mastered that really helped you.
They’ll always remember you for the extra thank you.
