It’s Friday (and 2017!), let’s sweep! | wreco talks + #getsocialsmart + business fit + year-end “science”


Welcome to Friday, our first sweep of 2017! As we launch into the New Year, let’s “digest” a few upcoming dates that very much interest me as we get our calendars back out and dial in for a very successful year…

2017 Kickoff Event | You’ll notice a sign up sheet available as of Monday in your office (Ballard, you already have yours being that you meet up on Fridays!) A snapshot of logistics below. Scroll down to my December 24th post for a reminder of the line-up  – aka, your peers sharing their ideas. Matthew Gardner + Dan Givens will also provide us “ideas worth sharing”. Luck us.

Your managers have all the details, just ask! See you there.

The year-end “science” | Next will be updated, Keeping Current Matters (Steve Harney) will launch their January Monthly Market Report and I’ll be including all in next week’s FWL. The “science”(macro + micro), crystal balls and market forecasts continue to roll in – I’ll do my part to share what I’m digesting next Friday. Cheers to 2017 and our constant pursuit of educating ourselves so that we can educate our people. A sneak peek of what our Chief Economist, Matthew Gardner is saying – click here. (posted December 29th 2016)

Goal = you as the trusted source.


And oh, one more item coming your way soon – a quarterly Seattle Market Report that will be available for your social media strategies + email campaigns + email signatures. Data being submitted to the designer today. This will be a quarterly tool – one you can plan on dropping  into your “flow” calendars.

Welcome to 2017 everyone, excited for now and what is to come…here to help – the ultimate goal. In continued partnership with you – shout if you need anything!

Ballard + Eastlake + Madison Park + Northgate + Sand Point + Wedgwood.
