First Merchants Bank Annual Networking Fair took place on Thursday, May 12th. It was an afternoon filled with building new relationships and listening to an inspiring message from Alison Levine.
Alison Levine, mountain climber, adventurer, and New York Times best-seller presented a message of leadership. Levine talked about the leadership principles that apply in the extreme sports environments she found herself in, like Everest and the South pole, also apply in the extreme world of business.
The event proceeds went to benefit the Otterbein University Kyle Miller Scholarship in memory of Kyle Miller who passed away due to a tragic kayaking accident in 2014. You can find more information about the memorial fund at kylemillermemorialfund.com.
E.E. Ward’s employees’ favorite part of the fair was sharing our quality based professional relocation services and why our customer experience focus sets E.E. Ward apart from others. We also were very proud to tell people our story of being founded in 1881 and that we are the oldest minority owned company in the United States!
Thank you, First Merchants Bank, for hosting an event that allowed us to give back and help us learn as a company!
