to their office staff by sending them to the luncheon, recognizing
that this is a great break in the day for those who are essentially
the backbone of their organization or business. In 2011, 180 office
professionals from Logan County came together to celebrate
excellence in the workforce.

audiences see the empowerment that they have in their job, no matter
what it may be. Dvorak is publicly known as one of the funniest
professional speakers in America.
