In junior high school Mike Van Ham, now president of SYLVIS, took a career class. He answered a series of questions and the teacher cross-referenced the answers to identify the appropriate occupation. He had to do the test twice. The first occupation was “ambassador”. Mike figured out what an ambassador did, but no one could tell him where to go or how to become one. The teacher asked him to do the same test again. The second time the teacher informed him that he should be a mechanic. And so he started down the path of repairing automotive engines.
"Does anyone remember BioFest Ocean Shores? Craig Cogger’s slides (yes they were using 35mm slides back then) were somehow lost and he did his entire presentation through what can only be described as interpretive dance. Many of us have never seen interpretative dance at BioFest, but we can relate to what inspired it – a love of biosolids, a commitment to science and research, and the desire to share this vast knowledge with others." - Dan Thompson
What is the best way to communicate about biosolids? This is a question we all ask ourselves, all the time. It is a question we will have to keep asking ourselves. The landscape around us changes and so does the world of communications.
