"David was absolutely awesome!! He really blew away the crowd, and I received countless comments on how much great info he shared and how entertaining he was. As for how things went for me….Of course if my attendees are happy so am I! But from a logistical standpoint, I thought it was totally awesome that he came in the night before and attended our walkabout market dinner. He also stayed to answer questions, and ate lunch with us after his presentation. That went a long way with me and my attendees. I really appreciated that! The entire process from beginning to end was easy and seamless. I have no bad news to report. You, your team and David were all great to work with, and I have no regrets selecting him to deliver our keynote.” – Produce for Better Health Association
