I find this topic very interesting! As an event planner, I rarely assertated my personal views or beliefs publicly. My clientele got my positive feedback on topics that I agreed with them on, although I regularly overlooked the subjects that I disagreed with them on. Looking back, I can't say that I'm proud of this fact, however, there is something to be said for tact when it comes to corresponding with a client. Now, mind you I certainly will stand up for my opinion, but I will surely never go out of my way looking for an argument and sometimes you just know when it will end that way. Generally, the customers who differed in opinions from myself just found their way elsewhere, while those in line with myself stayed on. Funny how that works out in the end!
