In January of 2020 the Toledo Excel Program was challenged with hosting its 37th Annual Conference for Aspiring Minority Youth with an acclaimed speaker Dr. Yusef Salaam. At the time Dr. Salaam’s story was featured in the most viewed docuseries in Netflix history “When They See Us” about the Central Park 5 case in New York. We received calls from as far away as Illinois about registration for the conference. One of our chief challenges was a history of poor quality audio in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium. We knew this could quite possibly ruin the experience for what we knew would be a capacity audience. We decided against using the “house sound” and brought in the Touchdown Agency. It is a decision we will never regret. The sound was crisp and crystal clear. The staff from Touchdown was timely, highly skilled, and professional. Our keynote speaker was pleased, and our audience was thrilled as well. Had we not had many spring events cancelled due to the pandemic, Touchdown would have been contracted to provide their expertise throughout the rest of the semester at The University of Toledo. I recommend them enthusiastically and without reservation.
