I was impressed by Mathew’s presentation for a couple of reasons. First, it was a very smooth presentation. Mathew had a slick presentation of his life and current job position, and he also flowed well with any questions that were asked during. He had a lot of helpful insight into the “Real World” and was altogether quite positive and hopeful for our futures.
I was hoping to see Casey speak and was somewhat let down that she was unable to make it to Sioux City. Mathew managed to do a decent job at speaking on her behalf. I was skeptical going into the presentation. Honestly, I saw it as two individuals from uber wealthy and well connected families come in and talk about how they advanced their careers. While those aspects weren’t really discussed, I feel that they may have played a factor in the success of both Mathew and Casey.
