I wanted to write and thank you again for the helpful advice you gave me regarding my press conference yesterday.
As I told you last week, I had never held a press gathering before. To say I was a little anxious sitting in front of so many reporters and TV cameras would be an understatement. However, your advice to address the reporters I have a rapport with first really helped to put my mind at ease. As a result, I was able to engage the public much more confidently and believe this helped enhance my presence immensely. The conference has just aired on TV and I am extremely pleased with my performance.
As I couldn’t have achieved this success without you, I would love to take you out sometime as a token of my gratitude. Would lunch this Thursday be possible for you? I know a great French restaurant in your part of town.
