Saying thank you for services rendered to guest speakers, board directors and visiting VIPs can take many forms. Sometimes a cash payment is neither expected nor appropriate. And depending on what other expenses you may be covering, such as accommodation and meals, an honorarium or a token of your appreciation is a much more meaningful way of rewarding someone for their valuable time.

Here are great suggestions from the Green & Green’s directory of gift ideas, — from a highly collectible Native art chess set — to enough gorgeous flowers to flood a hotel room. Each one a quintessentially Canadian gift thoughtfully created and assembled to provide a special west coast welcome for all your corporate VIP visitors.
