Sioux County Dairy Board Promotion

"Dr. Charles Petty met our expectations. He did an exceptional job of communicating with me prior to the event. He told me after the event that the crowd was younger than he had expected and that was somewhat evident in the feedback that I got too. He was good for everyone but the older audience members seemed to like him more, they thought he was great! The younger of the crowd thought he was still good, but didn't enjoy him as much. His material was appropriate."

"Dr. Petty was perfect for our group! He was very professional, on time and available to chat with our attendees. His family oriented message was spot on for our aerial applicators; humorous and inspirational. I don't think I have ever heard them laugh as much as they did Tuesday evening. He set the stage for a spirited auction and raffle that followed his presentation. Comments from our group were very positive. One attendee wanted the contact information. He thought he might be perfect for an upcoming meeting. Personally, I was extremely pleased! Thank you so much!"
