“Rob Quillen recently spoke at our 2017 National Utility Contractors Association of Nebraska Conference. His story inspired our members as he told us about his 9-11 experience. We were encouraged, challenged and compelled to reach out and help other people’s dreams come true. A couple of our members told me afterward that Rob’s speech was the best they had ever heard! The standing ovation at the end said it all. Our entire group was captivated by his presentation and we thank MidAmerica Speakers Bureau for booking Rob for us…he was terrific!”
