  • “The seminar was very useful from a number of perspectives. Firstly the opportunity to benchmark Virginia's lead generation methods with those of other agencies, secondly, it was helpful to hear from site selection consultants the importance of developing a carefully scripted value proposition, and finally, to listen to a company's perspective regarding how they work with IPA's on a particular site selection.”
