“Even more valuable than the material covered throughout the course, I found Prof. Thomas’s wealth of experience & overall wisdom provided more opportunities for personal growth than I could ever have expected. Upon completing the course, I’ve discovered that much of what I’ve gained will stay with me for years to come. I simply could not have been more grateful.”
Jonathan Landry, Mesa College Hospitality Leadership

“I really didn’t know what to expect from this course. I learned so much more from your lectures and power point presentations.What really pushed the points in for me were the case study work and most of all the activities. Participating in the activities helped me to better understand what was being discussed during the lectures. The also helped me to step outside my comfort zone and to think outside the box. Your personal antidotes were both entertaining and informative. The should definitely be part of the lectures. The help us see the lecture material from a real perspective.”
Ann Trantham McLaurin, Mesa College Hospitality Leadership

“When I first saw Debbie in my event management class as a guest speaker back in 2002, I thought to myself that I needed to have her as a consultant, because she knows what she is talking about. I met her several times in the ISES meetings, and I always admire her leadership ability. I intended to start my own business in catering, and I was looking at the different options of getting there. It was in 2006 that she and I finally sat down and she helped me in goal setting, business planning, and meeting other people, who would be my resources to get me started. Deb is very professional and a fun person to be with. I went to one of her classes in the Service Arts, and her sense of humor really made the class so interesting. Debbie was instrumental in where I am now, that I finally completed my years of service with the County of San Diego, and I’m on my way to being in the event industry. Thanks Deb.”
