1. What did you enjoy discussing with the audience?
I enjoyed answering the questions at the conclusion of the Webinar. There were lots a great questions and good to know the audience wanted to know a bit more about our water filtration product.
2. If you could give one piece of advice to another presenter, what would it be?
Typically, when I give a presentation it is just to a few people, and not being recorded for “On Demand” post presentation broadcasting. This seemed a bit foreign to me, so my advice would be to embrace that odd felling and just “roll with it”.
3. What has been the highlight of your career?
Hard to pick one event or project, so I will just say the relationships I have been able to have with co-workers and clients that have been long lasting. Those make the job/carrier fun and fulfilling.
4. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
There are so many wonderful places, but my two favorite places are: 1) Any golf course, early in the morning with three people who are determined to have a fun round of golf and 2) Mackinac Island (Northern Michigan) in August, riding our bicycles with my wife Heidi and my daughters Anna and Eloise. Golf is a great distraction and reason to pull yourself and those you wish to spend time with away from the day to day chores, and spend four hours together to catch up and enjoy the outdoors and each other’s company. Mackinac Island is a very unique place (state park) where no motor vehicles are allowed. Horse carriage and bicycles are the only means of transportation and spending the day riding (or pulling) my girls around the Island is just a great way to enjoy a day. If pressed to choose between my two favorite places, all I will say is that Santa’s Sleigh does contain golf clubs for both my young ladies.
