The assessment of Zion National Park and Springdale has been off-the-charts great. We are getting such great feedback from around the state with each of these assessments.

What’s it been, 6 days now? I am still at a loss for words. In the 40 years that I’ve lived here, I have NEVER witnessed the enthusiasm about our community that I am witnessing right now! People are so pumped. It’s like Roger came to Independence and gave us permission to start taking pride in our community! The city manager and city commissioners especially took note and were even talking about it at the city commission meeting last night. I guarantee people won’t feel so threatened any more by the City if they put things out in front of their store fronts. It’s amazing how the magic of Roger works. I don’t even know what to say except, 'Thank you for everything you have done for us.' I feel like Rip VanWinkle and have awakened to a whole new, beautiful world after a really long nap.
Debbie Puryear, Tourism Director - Independence, Kansas
Wow! What a wonderful day! You did such a remarkable job getting Manteca to think about its future. I have had so many good comments and numerous calls thanking us for the assessment. Thanks for making us look so good!

My phone has not stopped ringing since Tuesday night! Response has been beyond anything I ever anticipated. Your assessment has galvanized our community to move forward to make a difference.
Mayor Donnetta Walser - City of Monroe, Washington
The assessment workshop was awesome and I can’t tell you how much everyone is STILL talking about it!
Kim Buckler, Director - Oldham County Kentucky
I personally want to thank you so much for the assessment and inspiring us to go down the wayfinding road, and also for being an Asheville advocate whenever you speak throughout North America. The brand buzz about Asheville continues to grow.
Kelly Miller, Director - Asheville North Carolina CVB
We had such a great time with Roger. Everyone is pumped and my challenge is to move all that energy forward! People are e-mailing me and stopping me in the streets to talk about the Assessment. Safe to say this was a huge success. Everyone who missed him wants to know when he’s coming back! I’m wishing he would just move here! The wait was worth every minute. He really delivered and with humour and enthusiasm. The response has been wonderful!
Trudy Curley, Director - Bluenose Coast Tourism, Nova Scotia
You did a splendid job. The assessment report is not only excellent and concise, but your delivery continues to be just perfect. I heard many, many positive comments around town after your workshop. It’s fun to live in a place that’s ready to dare great things. Thank you for showing us the way

Often times you hear consultants of all varieties say they’ll always be there for you after their immediate project is finished, but they really aren’t. But I’m happy to say you have stuck to your word and have been a terrific source of information for us long after your specific project was finished, and for that, I sincerely thank you.
