What do meeting planners and webinar attendees say?
Michele addressed a tough topic with empathy, humor and truth. Many of our members confided that they were apprehensive about attending a mental health session, but thanked us for including it in the program because they found it enlightening and rewarding. Others said they were grateful to have attention brought to an issue that's immeasurably impacted their lives. Some said Michele's session brought them much-needed awareness of how mental health challenges are impacting rural America. Michele's reminder that valuing each other as humans before anything else was invaluable and grounding. The session exceeded our expectations."

Michele’s “Take Food Bullying By the Horns” presentation was perfect for our annual conference. Through our work, we interact with consumers on all levels of agriculture education and awareness. Michele’s research provided the tips and tools we need to make sure agriculture’s voice is heard. Michele was wonderful to work with throughout the entire planning process and was accommodating when we had to make the decision to shift to a virtual conference. She diligently prepared her presentation to ensure she understood our needs and met our expectations of her speaking engagement!"
