Mike was fantastic. He was very aware of some of the issues the Dairy industry is facing at the moment and tailored his presentation to make it relevant to the delegates. He has a great presentation style which is very relaxed but managed to captivate the audience. Mike was also our MC for the dinner. He was very entertaining and professional. Many delegates wanted to speak to him and have photos taken and Mike was more than obliging.
