Coffee with a Leader

brett gaugerI had the privilege to have coffee with Brett Gauger this morning.  Brett works at Asher Agency in downtown Fort Wayne.  Brett serves as a Digital Strategist there.

This meeting took place because Brett reached out to me via LinkedIn.  I found Brett to be a passionate and energetic leader.  He epitomizes the type of young leader our area needs – he grew up in our community, he attended college here, he landed a great job here, and now lives downtown.  He loves Fort Wayne and what he does.

Brett has been positively influenced by leaders in his past and present.  He genuinely appreciates how key leaders have helped him in his journey so far – from his high school tennis teacher to community leaders today.

Brett works with clients who are wanting to:

• Create digital marketing strategies based on their business, industry, and goals.
• Learn more about digital marketing to include written documentation, presentations, and webinars.  He can train on this!
• Implement, maintain, and report on social media and other digital marketing campaigns.
• Build meaningful relationships with a firm who will help them succeed.
• Analyze digital marketing metrics to provide a picture of ROI.

Brett is a young leader who is working to help our community become better.  And we are better because of him!  Connect with Brett!

Preparing for the Future

preparing for the futureThis morning, we will take one more step toward our 2019 Women’s Event as I will be meeting with another dynamic leader/speaker.  We will be announcing our  speaker line-up within the next month or so.  Jan Diaz is leading a team who will work hard to make this event meaningful and impacting.

We are so excited about the possibilities!  

Jere and I spoke yesterday, and we are starting to talk about Season 3 as well.  We have some new ideas in store.  We have been blessed to have such dynamic leaders in NE Indiana.  First Fridays is committed to adding value to our regional leaders!

One more thing, if you haven’t registered for our January 4 event, click on the image below.  Jere reported that we are at around 70 so far (registration closes at 150).
