YOU Are Destined for Greatness!

Aaron Putze lives in Waukee with his family and serve as communications director for the Iowa Soybean Association. Aaron is also an author and welcome the chance to share a program with your club and community, one adapted from my just-published book YOU Are Destined for Greatness!

It’s a follow up to Chuck Long’s biography that I authored in 2017 featuring stories of inspiration and empowerment as shared by 27 incredible and amazing leaders with Iowa roots. The book brings to life conversations I had with people who have faced adversity, overcome disappointment and learned from challenges and succeeding in all walks of life… from sports, retail, agriculture and business to education, elected office, civic involvement and non-profit organizations. Those featured include U.S. Ambassador to China Terry Branstad; AE Dairy CEO Miriam Erickson Brown; Hy-Vee Inc. Chairman, CEO and President Randy Edeker; University of Iowa football coaches Kirk Ferentz and Hayden Fry; Des Moines University President Angela Walker Franklin; Iowa Sports Foundation CEO and XFL coach Chuck Long; retired Casey’s General Store CEO Bob Myers; Greater Des Moines Partnership President Gene Meyer; mentor and retired Bankers Trust CEO Suku Radia; Scott Raecker, The Robert D. and Billie Ray Center CEO; Author and speaker Terry Rich; Atlantic Coca-Cola Bottling Co. President Kirk Tyler; and Iowa State University President Wendy Wintersteen (to name just a few!).

The perspectives they share encourage, motivate, inspire and empower everyone, no matter their profession or age! Aaron has created a program adapted from the book that weaves together themes featured throughout the book with timely events.
