His presentation set the stage for the rest of the course. Dr. Bauer’s attention to detail, and his friendly and congenial demeanor were well received by the audience.

This was a very well received session. Jeff delivered exactly what I requested of him keeping the presentation content light but encouraging discussion with the board members. All the feedback I heard was positive. He is very knowledgeable in many areas but yet is very conversational. He really knows his stuff.

Dr. Bauer was rated “excellent” by all attendees completing an evaluation. Some would have liked more time for Q and A which wasn’t possible with the meeting schedule. Very low maintenance, friendly, familiar with local environment and included local info in his remarks.
