Below is a confirmation of a request after this young lady called me from Chicago. She is with a marketing firm desperately trying to find engravers in Massachusetts. This firm has called me several times for engravers in various parts of the country and I’ve had only a few instances where my students are in the areas where they need engravers. Often, where I have none to recommend.
Also, repeatedly, I’ve told them a 3 hour event is a waste of time. All these dates listed below are already booked as FULL 8 hour days for me in Texas and should be the same for where my students are matched with retailers and suppliers who understand you just don’t book a 3 hour event any time. Much less in the Christmas season!
When I got the call from the watch mfr a couple of weeks ago wanting a TWO hour event, I told them I didn’t do two hour events. Told them I do an occasional half-day, 4 hours, at evening venues. The date they wanted was open on my calendar so I quoted the half-day rate for two hours and told them they had me for two, or four, as they wished. They took the 4 hours and it should be a good event at a Dallas Nordstrom if they do their work in promoting it.
BOTTOM LINE: There is a demand in countless locations for people who can sit and personalize items like those who have come through my training. I refer ones who stay in touch with me and express their appreciation for the opportunities.
NEXT WORKSHOP on November 12, 13, 14. If you’re interested, let me hear pronto.
