Your ‘marks,’ which are, of course among the highest ever seen at our convention, should come as no surprise to you.”

Staff Said This Was Best Training Ever…

Tennessee Farmers Cooperative

“A note of thanks for the GREAT job you did as our keynote speaker at our managers meeting. You kept the flow of the meeting running, kept the audience entertained and followed up with information that everyone could use back at their business. But let me share a quick story about Josh, one of our trainees in the audience. He is very quiet but also very sharp and inquisitive. Without being prompted, Josh told me, ‘I have never met Dr. Zimmerman until today, but he really impressed me in the way that he handled the meeting. He’s the kind of person I’d like to work with.’ In Josh’s mind, you became one of his role models, and I am sure that you had the same effect with the other folks in the crowd.”

Joe Huffine
Manager, Tennessee Farmers Cooperative

Engaged The Audience…
