Stories of Inspiration are a crowd favorite and telling them comes naturally for Aaron!
Raised on a grain and livestock farm located just a stones' throw south of West Bend, Iowa, Aaron took to public speaking at an early age (he was always the first to volunteer to share stories with the class as a youngster!) and graduated from UNI (University of Nothing Impossible, Cedar Falls, Iowa!) with degrees in communications, public relations and journalism. While at UNI, Aaron also served as executive editor of the Northern Iowan and Vice President of the UNI Student Government.
Aaron’s living proof that if you love what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life! He’s combined his respect for farmers, passion for agriculture and skills in writing and public speaking to serve as an agricultural communicator for almost three decades. After graduating from UNI, Aaron served a year as copy editor at Spokesman Press, Inc. Grundy Center, Iowa, before joining the Iowa Farm Bureau Federations communications team in West Des Moines. In 2010, he was named Director Communications & External Relations for the Iowa Soybean Association in Ankeny, Iowa.
As an agricultural communicator, Aaron has had the opportunity to deliver hundreds of presentations to organizations and groups of all sizes and for all occasions. From personal experiences, observations made during international travel and one-on-one conversations with dozens of notable Iowans (including university presidents, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and executive directors of nationally-respected associations and foundations), Aaron delights crowds small and large and on all kinds of topics!
Combining relevant stories, stunning visuals, good, clean humor and audience participation, Aaron weaves together fun, engaging and memorable entertainment perfect and appropriate for all audiences!
