This Friday, December 6 from 8-9 am is the next First Fridays Fort Wayne session featuring Amy Hanna. So why should you and your colleagues attend?
Get a Gift. That’s right, if you attend you’ll receive a gift. The gift of connections and networking. You’ll meet some of the finest leaders in NE Indiana on Friday. Making a meaningful connection is a great gift to receive. This gift will give back as you learn what leadership looks like at area businesses, as you will be challenged by Amy, and as you realize how blessed our community is to have leaders like the ones you’ll meet.
Give a Gift. Be open to meet and connect with someone new to you. Invest your time on Friday to make a connection that can lead to a time of coffee or lunch. Be sure to be ready to add value to those you meet. Give yourself and your connections with the intention of helping others around you to become better.

Today was another great event at First Fridays Fort Wayne. We were honored to have Marlin Stutzman with us as he shared lessons in leadership that he’s gained over the years as a farmer, entrepreneur, business owner, statesman, and business executive.
Here are a few photos from today’s event. The video from today will be posted soon. In case you missed coming today, you can always find us on our YouTube channel at First Fridays Fort Wayne.
Marlin Stutzman was outstanding!
Another great gathering on a very cold morning.
I can personally attest that Marlin practices what he preaches.
The Trine University board member received some Indiana Wesleyan University gifts.
Great leaders invest in others, and they add value – even to your future. I experienced that yesterday at lunch with a friend I met at First Fridays, Barry Schrock. He allowed me to ask him questions about his business and how he has grown through this experience. And he told me this:
Invest some time is getting to know a local leader better. Come prepared with good questions to ask them. You will learn much, I promise you.
If you missed yesterday’s First Fridays, here is a quick snapshot of what happened. I’ll be uploading a video soon so you can hear Matt Konkler’s presentation.
We had a great crowd again! Thank you, veterans, for your service. We are always thankful for you!
Matt Konkler shared insights on leadership from his experiences serving in Washington, D.C. with Secretaries of Defense Rumsfeld and Gates. Great stories. Valuable lessons.
Here are the leadership traits Matt saw on display in some of the top leaders in our nation.
Matt shared these characteristics that we. An all aspire to.

A great article to help you connect with others.
“A lot of research has been done on how we build rapport, to the point that specific techniques have emerged. There are, in fact, repeatable and measurable ways you can incorporate into how you communicate that can help someone you’ve never met like, trust or relate to you better. Think of how useful that might be for enhancing your career, business or family life.”
