A Banker I know volunteers with disadvantaged you to teach them the ways of Mergers & Acquisitions so that they may become rich.
The organization wanted a tour of the Financial District. They needed three guides for 100 tour-goers. They needed an itinerary. They needed it in a week.
Mission Accomplished: I got two other great guides that I have worked with for years, and away we went through a 100f heat advisory. (I consulted with the client so they'd be prepared for the weather.)
Here is what my contact wrote this week:
"It was great, I was with the head of ***, and some of the kids today. We
had Champions Camp and the kids talked about the tour....
I don't have specifics of what they liked, maybe it was the story of the Indian wandering by who "sold" the Island [of Manhattan]. I am going to see if we can do it again next year. Although I would do it early in the day, before it gets hot and crowded.
...We will figure out what will help make it even better next year."
Next year! I value repeat business and love to improve.
