We can’t thank EMJ and Rod Pedersen enough for their contributions to our inaugural sports dinner and auction. As a new committee throwing its first major event of any kind, we really appreciated the ease and efficiency with which EMJ looked after our arrangements, and even more so the wit, presence and professionalism Rod brought to our event. Rod had the entire room at ease within seconds of taking the stage, and kept the night flowing smoothly. It felt like he knew half the room, and he interacted with them accordingly. Rod also went way above and beyond what was asked of him by making a very generous offer that contributed greatly to our live auction proceeds. He even shared a handful of Roughriders related stories throughout the night despite only being booked as MC and not as a keynote speaker. We would not hesitate to work with EMJ again in the future, and Rod is welcome in our community any time.
