As President of the National Association of Professional Organizers, San Diego Chapter I highly recommend Elaine Swann as a dynamic and engaging speaker. Elaine delivered a well crafted personalized presentation on Business Etiquette to our chapter and it was one of the highest rated programs of the year.

Our Chamber made the wise decision of inviting Elaine to speak at our LINK Luncheon. Elaine’s presentation on Business Etiquette was fantastic and hit the nail right on the head. Her presentation is packed full of common sense information on networking, cell phone and social media etiquette. Her style of speaking is very personable and engaging and I would highly recommend her as a business presenter.
