One Response to PPAI’s Barnett Joins PPAS For Young Professionals Discussion

  1. Seth and the panel members were terrific. Far from being of one mind they offered differing views and opinions of industry practices. From marketing ideas to impact other younger demographic buyers to what platform or device to use to reach out they provided enlightening insights. Seth did a wonderful job in probing for deeper reactions. Wonderful event and PPAS welcomes your attendance at the next one!
