Event Name
Governor's Conference on Emergency Management and Homeland Security
Event Location
Kalahari Resort, Lake Delton, WI
Event Date
March 10, 2020
Preparation and Content
Scott Nethero was keynote speaker at the Wisconsin Governor's Conference on Emergency Management and Homeland Security. His keynote presentation was attended by almost 500 people. Scott gave a presentation on "Protecting the Magic, Emergency Management at Walt Disney World." It was immediately apparent that Scott was extremely well prepared to present this topic to such large audience. His presentation covered all facets of exercise planning and execution, responding to critical incidents, the importance of partnerships and training with other agencies and best practices for emergency response in a diverse and immense tourist based industry. Interesting insight into the world of emergency management in such a unique setting as Walt Disney World.
Presentation and Delivery
Scott Nethero's presentation was well organized. His visuals highlighted key points of the oral presentation but did not overwhelm it. Scott captured his audience, interjecting mild humor where appropriate. He moved around the audience and his voice and inflection stressed important elements of his presentation. Having participated in many conferences, trainings and tabletops over the past 30 years, Scott's was one of the best I have attended. Audience comments and questions throughout the presentation and afterward illustrated that they were well engaged in Scott's presentation.
Any other comments or recommendations?

I would highly recommend Scott Nethero as an excellent speaker on many diverse topics of emergency management. Our organization is already considering using his talents at an upcoming seminar.

Preparation and Content
Scott's presentation was well-organized, visually engaging, and relevant to the conference theme.
Presentation and Delivery
Scott's presentation was fluid and extemporaneous with plain language -- easy for all conference attendees to understand.The presentation served as a nice visual backdrop with very minimal text, so there was no real sense that he was droning on bullet points nor reading from a script. To the contrary, Scott provided relevant down-to-earth illustrations from his professional experiences that helped engage the audience. But I think what impressed people the most was that despite the high profile and high impact potential of his work in the field of emergency management, Scott does not project as a prima donna -- quite the opposite.
Any other comments or recommendations?

I would highly recommend Scott Nethero as a speaker or panelist at any emergency management or public safety event where he would be able to share his experience for others.
