That was the best presentation I've ever heard- including all. of the Ted Talks I've been to.

In contrast to other keynote speakers, your willingness to engage with us prior to our conference to ensure that your keynote was relevant to our diverse audience of university faculty, students, non-university partners, and rural community representatives was greatly appreciated. The focus of our conference was on stepping beyond boundaries, dealing with the complexities faced in creating positive futures for rural people and places. Your high-energy keynote and interactive session on the rapidity of change and generational differences of engaging and working through complexities were relevant and well received by the audience, setting a great tone for the conference. It was great working with you. Thanks.
