Founder/CEO All Y’alls Foods

DFW CPG always adds value to my day when I engage with them from a virtual happy hour or speaker, to networking and referrals. I owe a great deal of my brand’s growth over the past 12 months to DFW CPG as they have introduced me to the SKU accelerator program and have connected me with key players that support All Y’alls Foods. I am grateful for DFW CPG and as a CPG founder in the DFW area, it only makes sense to be a part of it.

Founder/CEO Tin Star Foods

DFW CPG is the first CPG focused organization I've joined, since starting Tin Star Foods, that feels like a community that I truly belong to. It has provided endless support not only in professional growth but they've been a network I can lean on when trying to make large business decisions. The founders, Richard and Rick, have always made me feel like they've got my back. Every single time I've asked for help, they've gone above and beyond to help me find the resources needed, locally. It's been crucial in my growth, not only as an emerging brand, but personally as a leader. The friendships made here are something I will be able to take with me wherever I go.

I have been a member of DFW CPG since a bit after it started, and it’s been one of my best experiences in the industry – networking with so many vendors, entrepreneurs, and other professionals. For anyone who is thinking about joining, it’s one of the best things you can do for your brand no matter the size. Since I joined, our company has continued to scale and I plan to continue to be involved in DFW CPG meetings and events.

About this event: 

Storytelling For Influence. Join us on Wednesday, February 9th from 6:00 PM CT – 8:00 PM CT at Four Corners Brewing Co. to learn from Eric Harris, CEO of MindHandle, Forbes Business Council Member, and Texas Christian University Visiting Professor. In this masterclass, you will learn the science of storytelling (on an emotional and chemical level) and why it is the most effective way to present and strengthen your personal and business communication.

Storytelling for Influence

  • The problem with most modern presentations: They’re the air we breathe in business, but the vast majority of them are ineffective.
  • The science of storytelling (on an emotional and chemical level) and why it’s the most effective way to present.
  • If you take a minute to spot patterns all around  you, you’ll find inspiration for your presentation.
  • Here’s one tool (The Movie Trailer) you can use to guide your next high-stakes presentation and get your audience craving more.

 

About the presenter: Eric Harris

Strategist by trade, storyteller by aptitude, creative by accident, professor by design. MindHandle CEO Eric Harris’ resume may not read the way you’d expect it to, but the sum of these experiences helps him empathize with clients, students, and the agency team.

After several years in large advertising agencies, Eric joined his clients on the corporate team at YUM! Brands, where he led Pizza Hut’s integrated communications for 2 years. The experience taught Eric not only what it was like to be on the “buying” side of the agency economy, but also how much room there was to improve on internal communications. That’s why Eric founded GatherRound, a training company focused on storytelling for presentations.

In 2018, GatherRound and MindHandle merged, creating an employment branding agency with the talent and expertise to reach employees with advertising quality messages. As CEO Eric provides the vision that becomes decisions in the agency, and if he’s ever missing, look no further than the nearest whiteboard.

Eric is a self-proclaimed suburban lumberjack, a communications professor via TCU Neely Executive Education, drummer, Forbes Business Council contributor, and a camp-in-the-backyard father of two.
