    Anon because I know people on this forum.

    This year at uni I did an academic research project with an organisation that agreed to help me. It was really nice of them because it boosted my profile.
    Now, I was meant to feedback my project with to the organisation, I had done a powerpoint with them and everything. The lady who coordinated it all and I was liaising with was meant to give me dates for presentation. This was back in Sept but then she never ever contacted me back, despite me having put together the presentation with her and also been to their offices.

    I don't really mind not having done the presentation because I have loads of other things to do anyway, but then I really would have appreciated some sort of closure or heads up on what was going on.

    Anyway my dilemma is that I feel bad for leaving things in the air like that and I also had planned to give her something as a thank you gift for allowing me to do my project with them.

    Would it be okay to email her and do a follow up and also to say thank you? Should I tell her I had a thank-gift and wanted to bring it to their offices? Is it okay to tell someone you are going to give them a gift? I'm usually used to gifts as surprises but I guess that's the only way I can do it. I can't just turn up to the offices unexpected because it's high security.

    I just thought it would be courteous and more professional. What do people think?
