The event (tourism presentation) got rave reviews from the media, community and hospitality leaders, thanks in no small amount to your gracious and articulate remarks.  You were not only entertaining and articulate, you did an outstanding job of connecting the dots and tying it all together.  In other words - they got it.

- Jeanie Cooke, Executive Director, Danville Area CVB
Ross Ament's presentations on the tourism market are a learning experience for not only the well established professional but equally for new students/interns coming into our industry.  The hand out material alone is a significant reason to attend any of his seminars.  Ross explains and presents to a level that is in attendance and relates equally to the entire audience. 
- Jim McCurdy, Group Tour Specialist
Ross is a consummate professional, polished speaker and offers factual and entertaining presentations on a variety of topics.  He delivers clear, consistent messages, provides examples  and strategies for success, and offers hand-outs and resources that reinforce the session discussed.  Ross has worked as an industry colleague for over a decade, and has assisted in both marketing and development projects for our 14-county area and numerous regional partners.  It is a pleasure to have Ross as part of our team when planning educational conferences and workshops.
- Bonnie Heimbach, Northern IL Tourism Development Office
Ross did a great job with our strategic planning session.  He got us to think about our opportunities and challenges and we were able to walk away with a great plan for our future.
