Dear Mark (AKA "Stress Doc"):

On behalf of the Frederick County Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, I want to thank you for presenting the program "Humor in the Workplace: Practicing Safe Stress" at our September, 2003 professional meeting. It was the one of the most dynamic, engaging presentations I have personally seen in years, and that includes presentations at several SHRM national conferences!

We had a record attendance at the meeting which signifies that HR professionals are seeking methods of addressing stress in the workplace, as well as managing their own stress. By the nature of your interactive presentation, you provided a brief escape for all of us while presenting ideas for building teamwork and managing conflict and stress! The feedback from our members has been outstanding. You received one of the highest ratings ever from our members' evaluations and the most frequently used descriptors were "excellent" and "fun." The only constructive feedback we received was that the time allotted was simply insufficient! Many have suggested having you back for an extended program, so we will have to discuss that.

Thanks again for an enjoyable, dynamic and relevant presentation!

Warm regards,

Sophia Dobransky
President --Frederick County SHRM
