Endorsements

While teaching people how to be socially savvy is my passion, it is rewarding to be recognized for a job well done.

Here is what others are saying ….

Business

I truly will See You At The Top!”

Trish Martineck – Vice President and Director of Communication, HKS, Inc: “Thank you for presenting at our “Work Strong” event at HKS. Your presentation was excellent. I received numerous phone calls and e-mails touting the benefits of the overall seminar noting specifically your “first impressions,” “boardroom protocol” and “dine like a diplomat” sessions. Thanks for bringing to light, “you don’t know, what you don’t know.”

Gregory Pynes, Meeting Planner Association: “Joy epitomizes the best practices she teaches as a protocol expert. For Joy, the art of protocol is not just a business, it is a way of life that she practices everyday. Joy’s style is perfect for the Junior League crowd or the engineers at TI as her method of imparting her knowledge is in a manner that allows the individual their own comfort and style in being a success in their professional and personal interactions.”

Greg Hext, CEO/Founder at Chapman, Hext & Co., P.C. “Joy did an excellent job of helping our employees focus on their image and how to present themselves in a variety of business environments. I She worked with them on their image, dress, etiquette and presentation.

We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to bring this type of training to their employees or management group.”

Mary Brown, Attitudes & Attire “You are awesome! The ladies loved the presentation, and your topics were perfect for everyone.  We all learned something, and we will definitely be “more polished”.  I found the concept of being “un-offendable” very interesting and so relevant.  I truly appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to share your message with our clients.” 


Church Groups

Dr. Ronnie W. Floyd, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Springdale and The Church at Pinnacle Hills, Arkansas and Founder-Leader of the Northwest Arkansas Summit for Business Persons: “Joy Weaver communicated enthusiastically and effectively to several hundred business leaders in our region.

Dr. David McKinley, Prestonwood Church Teaching Pastor: “Joy Weaver lifts the bar and challenges all of us to live by a higher standard.

I commend her with every confidence of progress and greater success.”

Beverly Dillow, Women’s Ministry Director, Kelview Heights Baptist Church – Midland, Texas: “What a treat it was to have Joy Weaver at our Holiday In-Style at Kelview Heights Baptist in Midland, Texas. Joy not only shared information on social etiquette in a fun interactive way, but her testimony was moving as well. Joy is someone that will encourage and stir your ladies to be a woman of grace and beauty as they pursue being a woman after God’s own heart. Joy is what she represents, style and grace with a heart for God. Our ladies are still talking about her and hoping she will be back soon.”

Thank you again so very much for coming to us and blessing us with a message (teaching) for us and generations to come!”

Youth

Ida A. Gephart, Director of the Plano Symphony Debutante Program: “Joy facilitated a correspondence and social etiquette session for our Plano Symphony Debutante class. She was energetic, wonderfully entertaining and very informative. It’s rare to capture the attention of high school juniors, but Joy kept them involved every minute. The debs learned valuable etiquette tips that will serve them well when they go to college and subsequently enter the business world. Thank you Joy!”

Jan Gibbons, Home School Parent: “I home school our daughter and last year my daughter and I decided to customize our health curriculum to include some training regarding manners. I found Joy’s book and presented it to my daughter, Meredith, and we both decided that it would be a good choice. We both read it and enjoyed it as it addressed, concisely, various situations (social and corporate) and the protocol for each. I had looked for etiquette books before, and my kids had felt they were outdated and stiff. Your book was fresh and highly applicable. Again, thanks for writing such a timely book.”

Cindy Bruner, Heart of Dallas- National Charity League Chapter – Dallas, Texas: “Thank you so much for speaking to our Heart of Dallas NCL Chapter yesterday. I am getting great feedback from mothers and daughters! My daughter is a pretty tough sell and she thought your presentation was one of the best we’ve ever had. Thank you – I think I got a few points in her book for having secured you as the speaker (believe me, credit helps with a teenage daughter!)”
