Thank you!

Jere sent out this email just now:

Thank you to those who attended First Fridays this morning.  We had a wonderful turnout.  Thank you to Matt Konkler from Blackpoint Strategies who provided the Rise and Roll donuts.  What a wonderful, messy blessing.  You can learn more about Matt’s company at


A special thank you to our speaker, Brian DeCook of Peacefire/Two Fires.  Brian shared about having a positive conflict culture.  Two words he brought to light were respect and responsibility.  These work traits come into action during three phases of conflict…authority, correction, and offense.  Brian will be presenting us with an executive summary of his message today.   We will not be sharing his powerpoint at this time.

His message was timely and engaging and we saw many in attendance relating to his topic in a personal and professional way.  If you were not able to be here this morning you will want to have Brian come to share his presentation with your team and leadership.  You can reach Brian DeCook via email at or

As a reminder, our April date is Friday the 13th.  Dr. Matt Lucas and Coach Jordan Langs of IWU will be our featured guests.  We are expecting a big crowd and will arrange the room to fit as many as possible.

After the First Fridays event, Coach Jordan Langs and Director of Athletics, Mark DeMichael will meet with those across the hall for a meet and greet to talk about IWU Football.

Once again, we are extremely blessed to have you a part of our First Fridays events.  There was some conversation today that June would be our final event.  That is partially true.  It is only our final event of this first season.  Coming this September we will kickoff a brand new season of great topics and engaging speakers.   Start saving the dates now for the fall kickoff to First Fridays.

Thanks for coming out this morning and we look forward to our April event.
