Mario shares with us what he tells farmers at a conference

What our customers say:

« De mémoire, jamais eu autant de bons commentaires sur un conférencier à notre assemblée générale en 10 ans (et on a souvent eu du haut calibre).
Mario est un fin observateur des médias, de la politique et de l’économie, excellent vulgarisateur, très apprécié des producteurs agricoles. Difficile de trouver des points à améliorer.
On a adoré la formule Q&A, on avait préparé des questions à l’avance, et l’animatrice a pu aller plus loin sur certains aspects avec lui. »
