“Holly was great; entertaining and helpful.”

“This was a good, good day full of valuable information.”

“Engaging and lively.”

“Solid, useful takeaways.”

“Encourage everyone to attend one her presentations.”

“You are not only efficient and effective as a facilitator, but you are also entertaining and enjoyable to listen to. You are highly perceptive of your audience, seeing things like participants who may not be tracking with the rest of the group. You are exceptional at coaching participants through foreign thought patterns. No one leaves your meetings with anything less than a full understanding of your objectives.”

“Every successful event begins with research and planning of program speakers. The outline of the program sets the entire atmosphere of engagement throughout the event.

The 2020 Corn Belt Seed Conference planning committee had the task of bringing together a 2½ day conference. The task was greater in that we were faced with the challenge of keeping a momentum throughout the event with our theme of “organizational culture” and eventually building with a capstone presentation on leadership.

It seemed our most challenging task was not only in finding a presenter to close out our day 1 session in speaking on Organizational Culture, yet we specifically searched for a candidate that could also emphasis the importance of culture and its relation to customer experience.

Holly O’Donnell was exactly what we had in mind for this session! Her presentation “The
Cultivation of Customer Service” couldn’t have been perfect! Our attendees had the outstanding opportunity to be a part of this informative and engaging session – and the post-conference feedback was indicative that we selected the right presenter for the program! Holly O’Donnell was enthusiastic from the initial contact – she was interested to learn about the industry in which she would be engaging – and her enthusiasm continued through the entire event! She was a pleasure to work with!

We have received excellent comments from our event, yet the overwhelming feedback received has been directly linked to the outstanding program. Holly O’Donnell was an integral part of that!”
