Dr. Vincent – The Grand Finale

Written by Chuck on Wednesday, November 9, 2005 , 3:22 pm

NAMA Agribusiness ForumThe final session was on Mad Cow, Oil and Fickly Consumers presented by Dr. Vincent Amanor-Boadu. That’s Dr. Vincent if you want to know how to pronounce Amanor-Boadu. He joked that kids ask him if he’s related to Eddie Murphy. He tells him that he is.

Dr. Vincent is the Director of the Ag Innovation Center at Kansas State University.

I’ll have a little more to offer but this is the end of the conference.

Decision Making Time With John

NAMA Agribusiness ForumI’m out in the hall posting this while John’s speaking inside. He must be a broadcaster based on the volume coming out of the room. John Phipps hosts U. S. Farm Report and entertained and informed at lunch.

At the time of this picture he was talking about memory but I can’t remember why.
