Dear Ms. Savas, I was so inspired by what you shared with all of us and I would like to extend an invitation for you to speak at our district Womens Forum. The audience consists of all the Female managers in the district; it will be a much larger group and I know that our ladies will greatly benefit from your wisdom. We will teach a class called “Networking: Unleash the Power of Relationships.” That is why your expertise on the subject would be an excellent segue prior to the class.
