Good stuff on a Metro Monday!
We're going to dig into the Des Moines Downtown Chamber with executive director Brian Waller (left) and the chairman of the public relations side of the chamber Marc Hollander. Why? Because we (and you) might want to know what they are working on for the benefit of their members and you (should you happen to live/work in the Metro). Every Chamber of Commerce I've been a member of has a special challenge to help their membership market themselves as well as do what they can to improve the overall economy. We'll be asking questions about what the Downtown Chamber does, what they think about the 750,000 square feet of empty office space downtown (and what to do with it), what they think of the boom in living arrangements we've had over the past few years, why so many "Chambers" (I think 28) in the Metro and what might be next.
Why do we care? Because, no matter what they say in West Des Moines...Downtown is the beating heart of this "Capital City", our image is here, people live here, work here and our studios are in the center of this "The greatest city in the greatest state in the nation"...so we're curious and hopeful.
There's lots to talk about and learn and we hope you'll join us for a frank and lively discussion with Brian and Marc as they share their Insight on Business.
I've never met Keelia Paulsen (here with daughter Henri) of Kehenri but I have watched her passion for shoe design. Keelia first caught our eye this spring when we saw some of her work on Facebook. As with any new business Kehenri has had its ups and downs. Space at the Farmer's Market didn't happen, the weather gave her fits with some openings and more. But, through it all Keelia as remained upbeat and...hey we just like what she is doing.
She's also going to share news about the upcoming "Rock & Runway Show" coming on the 28th! Sounds like fun!!
Join us at 1:00PM right after Marc and Brian to meet and see what Keelia Paulsen has been doing with her custom show design business, Kehnri. Hey...it's Metro Monday and we get excited when we get to introduce you to new folks and ideas.
In other news:
There is a story floating around that The Des Moines Egotist will carry something about me in their edition today. Hmmm... I hope they leave out that story about the rutabaga and rooster. It's a part of my life I'd like to forget.
The 155th Iowa State Fair is history. This year saw some good stuff (as always) and more ink about the safety of "fairgoers" than what the fairboard and staff would have liked to have seen. How did this year pan out? What happened with Bobo? How come I only got to go TWICE? (A personal worst...) And why I wish I'd have gone last night to visit with Sheryl Crow. We'll give you our insight...from conversations with vendors and others.
