Here are a few comments about our speakers:

I just wanted to thank you for putting me in contact with John Boelts. It was a wonderful day of learning and he went out of his way with my students. We were all very impressed. My students and I were astounded by his depth of knowledge and his ability to convey it.  All of us felt privileged to have had the opportunity to learn so much. He is passionate about his crops and cares that he is helping to feed the people of the United States a quality food product.

I just want to thank you for arranging for Sonia Gasho so speak to our Nature Club tonight.  She was a wonderful speaker and I think there were more questions than we have had for any other speaker.  After the meeting a few of us enjoyed her company at dinner.

 

Thanks again for arranging such an interesting and informative speaker.

We contacted you for a speaker for our staff training.  You contacted Wes Kerr who gave us a training on his family’s dairy farm.   His presentation was ranked extremely high by our staff due to his knowledge of the farm, science, etc.  And staff thought he was one of the most relatable and dynamic speakers that we have had in a long time.
