Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  …for the training you helped us with yesterday.  In my opinion the Compost Management Team training was a huge success!  The quality of the content you provided was outstanding!  There is no doubt you have helped move our composting team forward in a very big way.  During the day you also offered specific insights and recommendations that we will certainly use to improve our response planning.

Thanks again for taking time out of your busy schedules to be with us.  We know your time is valuable and we are fortunate you could share some of your valuable knowledge and experiences with the group.
