“Everything I ever needed to know about Pest Management, I learned from beer.”
A Beer LogicTM Presentation

Join us during the MPMA Winter meeting for a memorable presentation of humor, knowledge, and sampling beer! Certified Cicerone®, humorist, marketer, and co-host of the award-winning radio show “What’s on Tap Radio”, Chad Pilbeam will offer a unique and fun presentation on the pest management industry, relating it to beer and brewing. Chad offers a non-traditional approach to motivational speaking and business applications by engaging audiences in banter, facts, folklore, and more! You’ll look at the Pest Management industry in a way you’ve never seen it before, learn a little bit about beer, and have a fun and memorable experience with practical take-aways you can use.

You’ll learn, you’ll laugh, and you’ll get to drink beer!
