people say about Dale Bradshaw
"Words cannot express my sincere appreciation for the
presentation you gave to our Marketing and Business students yesterday.
Your willingness to take time and then reschedule so many times
from your obviously busy schedule, and the tremendous professional
expertise from which you spoke had tremendous impact on us all.
Ironically, many of the points you covered were exactly those
which our key student program leaders had in mind when we planned
to invite you and selected the topic you spoke to. I was personally
delighted to hear your comments regarding body language, self-control
and goal setting. All of these topics are so relative to our students
as they continue to plan out their careers.
In addition, I want you to know that the students must have really
listened to what you said. The following day the students were
talking about their "remote controls" and "toothbrushes."
When I asked them why they were quick to give back some of the
examples you so vividly explained the day before. Hurray for students
listening; three cheers for you animated presentation.
Thank you again for the time and interest you devoted to my students."

"Thank you so much for taking the time to speak to our
Occupational Preparation classes about Job Interviewing Skills.
I heard many good things about your presentation. I missed you
on Friday because I had to attend a meeting. The hand-outs you
provided were greatly appreciated by the students. We are conducting
mock interviews for the next two weeks, so this presentation was
very beneficial in preparing the students.
Thanks again for your timely and informative information on job
