As Maya Angelou, so eloquently wrote – “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Are you a business that wants to be remembered for caring about your clients, suppliers, contractors, employees and staff? However, sometimes are busy and need some inspiration about ways to remember these important people?

How do you feel when someone appreciates you or remembers your special occasion?
