What historical figure
would you most like
to speak at one of
your meetings?

“I would say Ronald Reagan. You could always depend on him to bring in the crowds. He also had a way to relate current world affairs to the type of group he was speaking to. There was always a good ‘take-away’ for everyone when you heard the man speak.”

William L. Youngs, CMP
Meeting Planning Specialist
Forest Research Institute
Jersey City, N.J.

“As an investment bank with roots in Australia, we would like to have Major General Lachlan Macquarie, ‘the father of Australia.’ He was the governor of New South Wales and was instrumental in the establishment of Australia’s first bank. On a personal note, I would love to have Elvis at one of my events.”

“Andrew Young [former congressman and ambassador to the United Nations, an ordained minister and human rights activist]. I feel he is a great example of what we all should strive for as far as his natural ability to relate and interact in diverse situations globally.”
