In his presentation, Wahl emphasized the importance of taking risks and tapping into inner strengths while he delivered the onstage painting performance for which he is known.
Breunich discussed the current state of the company and the market, recent accomplishments, new initiatives for the coming year and predictions on 2014 market performance.
