Are You on Fire? Reflecting On Your Brand Champions
 
This solution-driven presentation speaks to the core application of why some leaders stand out in a crowd when you deliver the same exact set of skills. More than likely they have created an authentic brand supported by core values that differentiate themselves from others. Reflecting on your supporters is a mindset and a time-tested, real-world process. Attendees will walk away with tips, tools, and techniques that can be applied on the job immediately from “The Lady on the Harley©.”


Speaker Bio:

It’s no surprise that Michele Wierzgac, MSEd keynote speaker and author has been dubbed by the media as “Business Solutions From The Lady On The Harley.” Michele promises that you will all leave her solution-driven keynotes and workshops with at least one passionate, life transforming leadership tool – something that will change the way you seek out solutions and practically apply them without getting stuck. So get ready to write down tips, tools, techniques, and proven solutions that will shift and lift the course of how you think and how you work, all while having FUN in the process!

She has presented to prestigious organizations worldwide and is an adjunct professor and a symbol of navigating business solutions with high energy, audience engagement, and on-your-feet participation. Michele is the author of the book, The Talking Stick: A Guide to Reflecting on Your Personal Brand and is available for meet-and-greet book signings after every presentation.

In her spare time, Michele is a Rider Coach for Harley-Davidson’s Motorcycle Riding Academy.

Community Outreach - Fondy Food Pantry   
 
Hunger affects everyone.  Fondy Food Pantry is a non-profit, all volunteer organization established in 1973 whose main focus currently is to provide non-perishable boxes of food to needy families in Fond du Lac County.  In addition to the emergency boxed food program, Fondy Food Pantry also provides weekend food (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 snacks) to approximately 680 children who otherwise would have little to nothing to eat on the weekend.

Fondy Food Pantry’s President Sandy Breth said hunger is real in the community and the need to help those who don’t have enough to eat is significant. The poverty levels continue to increase in Fond du Lac County and across the nation. Low wages, and rising costs of housing, food, gas, utility bills, clothing and other basic needs affect families who are struggling to make ends meet. For more information about Fondy Food Pantry, please visit them on Facebook or on their website at http://www.fondyfoodpantry.org/
 
There are so many in the Fond du Lac community that utilize their donations that they often have bare shelves. What could they use specifically? 
 
Please bring any of their wish list items: canned vegetables, potato sides, juice, tomato products, rice sides, mac and cheese, pancake mix for the boxed food program.  The Food For Thought program which provides the weekend food for kids needs individual-sized easy-open cans of vegetables, fruits, tuna and chicken and pasta meals, such as Chef Boy-ar-dee.
