Correspondence to thank people

People are rarely thanked. Yet they really appreciate appreciation. People warm to those they think are on their side. Get a pack of thank you cards, and keep some to hand at both work and home, and in your briefcase, along with some stamps.

If you attend a function, send a thank you card if you were invited personally. You might also send a complimentary letter to the speaker if there was one a and you thought he was good. But don’t be insincere. Mention one or two things he specifically said that you liked. Use a fountain pen of course.

Unless your cards/notes are pre-printed with your name and contact details, include your calling card (business card) so that people know who you are. They will probably keep your card, perhaps using you as a useful contact for the future.
