Ep.34 Closing off 2020 and new year resolutions – a personal note from Daniel Schröer

Kicking-off 2021, your Talking Pest Management host, Daniel Schröer, welcomes all listeners and wishes each and every one a happy new year.

There is something of a change, as Daniel has no industry guest to interview….only a personal and heartfelt message. “The industry is my hobby and my passion. It means a lot to me that you let me be your host and that you like what I do. Thank you for all the support and positive comments you have sent me over the past year.”

Daniel congratulates the industry as a whole for the way it has responded to the events of 2020 – a roller coaster year when business was turned upside down. The industry has proved itself to be a critical service and should rightly be proud of all its activities. He says: “When I retire I want to say I have done something good for our industry.”

Reflecting on the activities of Talking Pest Management (TPM), Daniel explains how it began – to help fill that gap created when personal conversations and interactions were lost with the cancellation of all events and conferences. Over the months there have been thousands of TPM viewers, listeners or readers, ranging from technicians wanting to learn more about their industry, to research staff hearing about new developments, to company owners and CEOs keeping in touch with commercial activities. Thank you for your commitment and feedback.

For the future, TPM interviews will be released every two, three or even every four weeks. It is quality rather than quantity that is important. The aim is to encourage people to ‘think outside the box’. What will our industry be like in 10 or 20 years time?

Suggestions of topics and interviewees are always welcomed. Send these to Daniel. As Daniel says, “At the end of the day, we do this for you.”
