McGuire gave a presentation entitled 'The Affordable
Care Act ...You, Your Family and Your Business'
as part of our Holt County Economic Development
Entrepreneurship Series. I must say Sean did a
great job! To say he knows his stuff is an understatement!
One of the best things about his presentation
is that he broke it down into easy to understand
segments that the audience could better comprehend.
Those in attendance were also complimentary of
Sean's presentation, and had several very good
questions. Sean promised up front it would be
a non-political presentation and it was. As he
stated at the beginning, he presented us with
the 'good, the bad and the ugly!' I would highly
recommend him as a speaker for other business
and community groups!" ~ Nicole Sedlacek, Executive Director,
Holt County Economic Development
am happy to endorse your inclusion of Sean on
your speakers bureau list. Sean came to UNMC's
Dean's Office in 2009 after significant exposure
to policy-making as staff of the Senate Finance
Committee. His grasp of the political process,
his contacts in Washington, and his energy and
savvy helped us understand and influence reactions
to the health care legislation then forming. He
staffed a weekly interactive meeting of University
leaders to keep them abreast of the develop- ing
law, then the ACA, and to plan accordingly. As
a speaker he joined us in a temperate so-called
'town hall' for Senator Nelson, several seminars
for interested medical and other students, presentations
to the Regents, and various Departmental Grand
Rounds with helpful powerpoint material, crucial,
often missing facts, and Q&A sessions requiring
spontaneity as well as specificity. Subsequently
he continues to inform and instruct in the community.
He avoids partisan shadings of the facts, has
a sense of humor, and is a reliable resource."
