Invitations- Accepting invitation to Speak - 4
I can’t tell you how excited I was to be invited to speak at the Horticultural Business Endeavors Conference. It will be an honor to address the business of growing exotics for sale at wholesale nurseries.
Let me confirm the information I wrote down when you phoned: The conference is the weekend of July 17 at the Lakeside Resort. I am to give a 90-minute presentation beginning at 3:00 p.m. on the 18th.
From what you indicated, very few of the conference attendees have begun any sort of horticultural business, so I plan to keep my presentation fairly basic. I’m bringing along samples of the various exotics I raise, as well as handouts on how to break into the business and specific markets for exotics. I would also appreciate use of an overhead projector and screen, or a large marker board.
Will I be able to get into my room ahead of time to set up? It will take me at least 30 minutes to set up. I would appreciate knowing as soon as possible what arrangements have been made so that I can adjust my plans accordingly.
I will be able to provide you with an outline of my presentation by the end of this week. Feel free to inform me of any modifications you feel would improve the quality of the information.
Thanks again for the opportunity.
