Real Estate Show Dave Tribbett with V Consulting
Alice Lema: [00:00:00] Well, Hey, there's Southern Oregon. Welcome back to the real estate show. So happy you could join us again. I'm Alice Lema, broker John L. Scott here in beautiful Southern Oregon. I'm your host of the real estate show. And today we're gonna be talking to one of my favorite business development people and tech heads.
Dave Tribbett of V3 consulting services. Dave does business in organizational development and, you know, with hyper inflation a lot of the trauma we had to our businesses because of the fires and also the COVID. Dave is the perfect person to help us get back to it. He's also great at helping people start businesses.
So Dave Tribbett of V3 consulting is gonna be our guest today. He's gonna bring us up to speed on what he's been doing and how he can help you start a business, scale a business just make the business more efficient. And it's not all about technology or digitizing. It's, it's also about other things you can do to give better services to your customers.
So Dave [00:01:00] Tribbett, V3 consulting is gonna be our guest today. Let's take a quick look at what's gone on in our local housing market this week. I'm so happy to say in Jackson and Josephine county, this week, we had 270 new listings, 165 closed properties. And 281 price changes. So a lot going on. Our market is absorbing all the changes.
The buyers and sellers are trying to get together and make something happen. Wanna say huge, congratulations to the 165 folks that closed on a real estate transaction this week in Jackson or Josephine county. It feels great, doesn't it? Whether you were buying or selling or both, it's just so nice to have that new step in your life. So congratulations to all involved.
On some national real estate gossip, we've got Elvis Presley's abandoned childhood home going on the market in Tupelo, Mississippi. The auction starting price is gonna be [00:02:00] between 30 and $50,000. I don't normally talk about stuff like that, but I thought it was interesting.
I did not know that Elvis had an abandoned childhood home in Tupelo, Mississippi, and I thought 30 to 50 grand was an awesome starting place. So if you ever wanted to own a piece of Elvis there you go. It's online. You can just Google Elvis childhood abandoned home. Boom.
There it is also this week in Sacramento, California, Ronald Reagan's homes. One of Ronald Reagan's homes went on the market for 5 million. So if you're not looking for a $50,000 property, you can find a 5 million in Sacramento. Ronald Reagan's home went on the market in Sacramento for $5 million this week. So every once in a while, we'll throw in some gossip just to mix it up, cuz sometimes it's fun just to talk about that stuff.
Okay. So we've got a quick break coming up and then we're gonna join Dave Tribett of V3 consulting services. Do not touch that dial.
Well, welcome back to the real estate show folks. I'm Alice Lema. I'm a broker here in [00:03:00] beautiful Southern Oregon with John Scott real estate. And today we're so excited to be talking to Dave Tribbett from three V consulting.
Thanks Dave, for coming back on the show, it's been a while.
Dave Tribett: It has, and I still remember that fondly at first visit that I had with you and Pete.
Alice Lema: And Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, Pete's retired.
Dave Tribett: Okay. A lot of people have in the last couple years.
Alice Lema: Yeah. Yeah. It's kind of the thing to do. But I'm so excited to get caught up with you. You're just one of my favorite technology gurus. Why don't you just remind people what three V consulting is and let's go from there.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. So V3 is consulting. We started in 2017 and prior to that, I was working coast to coast with doing business and organizational development. So basically a lot of entrepreneurs, they do a thing well. But they don't know all of the other pieces that go into that. So we come and, and we help put those pieces together. Train [00:04:00] employees, build training systems, do all kinds of stuff as far as that goes.
And so in 2017 that our, our the founding of V3 consulting services, the point was to have scalable business intelligence because it wasn't something that we were seeing a in the valley. And that leaves a lot of our businesses vulnerable to any number of things, as far as competition.
Alice Lema: So what is scalable business intelligence?
Dave Tribett: Yeah. You know, a good example is a company that I probably about four years ago, did a walkthrough and basic evaluation of, and I asked them, you know, how are using their, your data?
You know, what does that mean to your company? What are your growth? You know, KPIs and other key metrics that companies would use. And so scalable business intelligence is using the right amount of data and other elements to help a company or organization have steady [00:05:00] growth.
Alice Lema: Which is something we all want, especially post pandemic. So let's, let's just go backwards a little bit. Cause it's been a while since we've talked to you, how did you and your, the businesses that you help, how did everybody do during the shutdowns?
Dave Tribett: I would say that it was a very, very difficult time. It really depended on the business. Even though things were very difficult for you know, companies that have consumable products, food beverages, but it's still at its core as things that we needed.
So I would broadly speak, not specifically just to the businesses that we work with, if that's okay. It's also how businesses were resetting, how they were realigning, what it is that they offered. And there was a lot of that within the community locally and nationally as well. So I would say that the companies that that we work with and deal with a lot of them had significant [00:06:00] growth.
And some of the companies that we dealt with are not around anymore. And out of that proverbial aftermath or ash, many new companies were born out of that as well.
Alice Lema: Very cool. Very cool. Well, technology certainly has a much bigger place in businesses now. And a lot of people are still not adopting very quickly or they don't understand, or there's some fear. How does 3d help people make that, make that leap into digitization?
Dave Tribett: That's a great question. It really starts with a deep dive in evaluation into the organization and what it is that their goals and best options are. Some things can be pretty easy as far as well, we're on zoom right now. And that was something that a lot of companies didn't use previously and other technologies around utilization of things like CRMs, different types automation within their companies.
There was actually a really interesting project. We were working on with a local [00:07:00] company that they did everything by hand. It was all paper documents and stuff. We came in and I brought in some extremely talented individuals along with myself and built out custom digital documents, databases for them.
Built kind of a web app hybrid, and really we're able to do some pretty dynamic things with that organization. And even the step above that is utilization of things like, you know, switching from QuickBooks desktop to online, being able to tie in certain automations and it really makes the workflow much more efficient and lets the business owner and the employees really focus on the, the client a lot more.
Alice Lema: It frees up a lot of time. Doesn't it?
Dave Tribett: does. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. If you had, if you could even think, you know, you have these paper documents, you have to enter it into the computer, then you have to enter it into QuickBooks and you actually there are some very streamlined automations [00:08:00] that could actually be used and, and there think by today's standards very secure.
Alice Lema: Mm-hmm mm-hmm so one of the things I noticed during the fires, were that the companies and the humans, the people that had digitized and had all, a lot of their workload on the cloud, which is some of what you're referring to mm-hmm they didn't miss a beat. And they actually got their insurance checks faster.
Dave Tribett: yeah. Yeah. And you know, it. I was talking with an individual and they were saying, because they're in finance, they were saying how, even now, prior to the fires and stuff, a lot of the individuals, small businesses, sole proprietors still did a lot of everything like paper ledgers and stuff like that.
They weren't backing up to the cloud. They didn't have, you know, a backup that was stored in a safe place. And actually in this interview, I'm excited to share some of the stuff coming up with the [00:09:00] expo. But maybe just a little bit as far as that goes, because when you're setting some great standards for, for local companies, but yeah, that made a huge difference as far as a lot of the local companies go.
Alice Lema: So when someone comes to you and they're doing things on paper how do you, what does the conversation sound like about the time that you get back and the human energy that you get back? What does that conversation sound like?
Dave Tribett: Yeah, well, and again, just reflecting back, it really goes into why they want to make the changes and stuff like that, that they are. There is some fear and trepidation around digital systems because things are, have been done for so long and a lot of companies in truth that I talk to, they don't really even realize how much they will gain from actually implementing some of the new technologies now.
Whereas maybe it was 20 or 30 hours of bookkeeping. And now maybe with a couple of [00:10:00] integrations, maybe a couple hours a week. And it really is a massive shift. So if they're not spending all that time there, they're dealing and focusing more on customers increased profitability, hiring more employees.
It really does free 'em up to do some pretty amazing things, but it really, it starts with a deep dive into you know, why they want to change things and what they want to change.
Alice Lema: So what's the most common reason somebody might say they want to change. Like what's the biggest complaint?
Dave Tribett: Well, the a lot of the companies are just that time factor. You know, they, the, just the time alone of going out to service a customer, use paper documents coming back, doing all of the bookkeeping and all of the other work that goes into that. You see exponential increases in company growth, profitability, scalability, and, and also it lets 'em be able to track and realign maybe universal [00:11:00] selling propositions KPIs, key performance indicators.
And all of these, some things are possible to do with technologies that really are not that difficult to deal with, but maybe just are unfamiliar.
Alice Lema: Yep. Yeah. And it is a big leap if your security is with pen and paper. But since we primarily talk about real estate do you ever have landlord little mom and pop landlord folks, or do you have any suggestions for creating some digital transformation for either a landlord or a real estate agent, a lot of real estate agents listen to us.
Dave Tribett: Well, it's, you know, I hate to speak in very, you know, generalized terms, but getting the time back, lets you spend more time with your customers. And some of the integrations can be as simple as you know not only just going from paper to digital, but having all of that data so that as your company [00:12:00] grows, just going from like just a couple simple things, you know. You, can you go from, you know, paper and pencil or desktop, QuickBooks to QuickBooks online, they have things called API that will let you link into other technologies.
So those are pretty simple steps and stuff, as far as that goes. And then some of the greatest benefits is that you may see part of your business dropping off, but not know why. But in, in digital terms, you're able to actually understand trends and you can visualize this data and opportunity at different markets.
And you're able to U layer things like census data and all kinds of amazing stuff. And you can look out over the entire valley and you can see where you're having penetration, where you're not. And all of that first, that all starts with utilizing some cloud based and digital services.
Because it cascades through all these different systems then can be linked in [00:13:00] to empower you, your company, your organization, not just to save time but to exponentially increase profitability and really have a good idea of growth trajectory and stability.
Alice Lema: And I know a lot of business owners, they really love their business and they love their clients so much and they wanna do a better job every day than they did before. So one of the things I'm hearing you say is, is going into some of these newer systems actually allows you to spend time helping the people that need you.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. Instead of doing book work, you're out meeting with your new friend, you're out meeting with your new customer. You're touching bases with them and these systems can all talk to each other so that if you pull a report or something like that, you're not going through a billion and one emails you're going through you're, you're going through critical information that that can be compiled in a much easier way.
And, and also like you were saying, just reflecting back on the [00:14:00] fires, you needed all of your documents, you needed your PNLs, you needed all that information and stuff like that. And so sometimes change can be uncertain or a little frustrating at times, but individuals such as myself and the phenomenal individuals that I work with are there to, to help through that.
Alice Lema: Right. Well, and you're one of my favorite techy people. You're so fun to talk to. And you also have a nice way of you know, making it relatable to the, the everyday person. So in the little bit we have left before our next break. When someone comes to you and says, let's, let's do the examination, do you start online or do you actually go visit.
Dave Tribett: As often as possible, we go and we'll meet with them. We really work with the individual and kind of what their schedule is, what their preference is. The meeting with them in person is a much better connection for sure. But we actually will meet those [00:15:00] customers or clients where they are.
Alice Lema: Oh, that's good. So your experience is not completely digital.
Dave Tribett: No, not at all.
Alice Lema: Some, some human interaction. So we've gotta take a quick break folks. We're talking to Dave Tribbett of V3 consulting services, business, and organizational development will be right back.
Well, hi again, everybody. And welcome back to the real estate show. I'm Alice Lema here with John L. Scott and beautiful Southern Oregon. I'm a broker locally, and we're talking to Dave Tribbett of V3 consulting services. He does business and organizational development, and he's also one of my favorite tech heads. But he is also just a great human. And right before the break we were talking about Dave, we were talking about some of the things that you're working on and you have some really exciting announcements. Let's, let's talk about what you're doing next.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. So you know, for a long time, I think a lot of great individuals, organizations, and a lot of great efforts have been put into growing innovation in [00:16:00] our community.
And I don't know how many people are aware, but in last biennium that'd be 2021, 2022 Oregon granted 1.5 million to business, Oregon, to then put out grants to regional communities, to research what those communities specifically need to build regional innovation hubs. And so that process has gone through. And we've submitted the grant application and we're I'm just really super excited to see.
And now it says dual county, so Jackson and Josephine county will be researching what is our community really needs to grow.
Alice Lema: So what is a regional, what did you call it? Regional information hub. Innovation innovation. Yeah. Regional innovation. What is that?
Dave Tribett: So some of it, thanks for the question. Some of that goes back to Oregon wanting to position themselves as a, you know, more favorable place for business. And some people may be [00:17:00] aware, Oregon released a 10 yr innovation plan and as an aspect of the 10 yr innovation plan, and I'd be happy to share any of these links and stuff, if that's helpful. Yeah. Out of that created the grants.
And then once the grant money comes into our area I'll be one of a group about seven to 10. And then we'll be working with a consulting agency doing amazing work in the community to really answer those questions. And those needs that we have in our community moving forward.
Alice Lema: So is this a physical location?
Dave Tribett: That's a great question. you know, don't exactly know what will fit for our communities best. It could be a physical location. And, and later in this you know interview, I'd like to share a little bit about what we're doing with Sorin and that will be a physical location. But as far as this piece goes, as far as the regional innovation hubs, people have ideas but there isn't a solidified plan that will work well [00:18:00] for both Jackson, Josephine counties currently.
Alice Lema: Mm-hmm , you know, and both of our counties are a big mix. We have people who are super digital, all ages. All ages, we have 80 and 90 year olds that are more digital than I am. And then we have, you know, people that are not, and they're proud of it. So having a physical location I think would be handy, but I would vote for complete virtual.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. And we, and I, you know, I think it's gonna be both. I know for what we're doing with, Sorin and it will be physical because proximity is key to success. So if you were a young person or an individual at, at any age in the valley, and you looked up to somebody that was an innovator and you had a chance to come face to face with them for a few minutes, that would , you know, pretty radically change your life to push through the difficult times and whatever it is that you were doing.
So proximity really is important, but the virtual [00:19:00] allows for a more decentralized kind of network throughout the valley, of all kinds of important work that's being done.
Alice Lema: Mm-hmm mm-hmm yeah. And, and our geography is so big. Yeah, that virtual would, would be helpful. What do you think about Starlink? Elon Musks? Just a tangent briefly, his new satellite system coming to our valley.
Dave Tribett: So I think it's pretty interesting. I, I have some friends and business associates in the area and one of them were out on a, a cool evening you know, sipping some, some wonderful wine here from the rogue valley. And they looked up and they saw this alien invasion going across the sky. Yeah, because one of the, the, the biggest complaints and all of that, that I have seen is that they don't like the reflective nature of the solar panels interfering with like the night sky. I, but technology wise, I think it's wonderful.
[00:20:00] My uncle was a lead system designer with NASA. And he is part of a small aerospace firm now in, I think they're in Arizona, but he actually worked on one of the first arrays, which was the Iridium array, which was Motorola.
And that didn't exactly go the way that they had wanted. But it's fascinating. It's helping a lot of people in rural.
Alice Lema: It is in the rural districts. Yeah. And they really need it. It's amazing. So then, you know how that changes real estate is location is not you know that meaningful anymore. Yeah. And quite frankly, before the shutdown, I thought that's what was gonna be the game changer. Not a pandemic.
So, yeah. Yeah. You know, so anyway going back to Sorin, you keep mentioning that and we haven't really talked about what that is. Let's bring people up to speed. It's very exciting.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. So Sorin started as a mastermind back in 2017, looking at disruptive technologies at scale that will impact all of our [00:21:00] lives. And we invited a lot of different people from a lot of different backgrounds and out of that you know, with you know, MIT and Forbes and all of these different you know, publications and think tanks saying that up to, and they said they don't guarantee this up to 51% of the global workforce could be automated if some people were concerned about that.
And so out of that, I started actually doing research into how these things would impact our communities. And You know, travel tourism, hospitality, quality of life in our area, you know, it's wonderful. But if we go into a more tech driven economy, which we are, the whole world is the positioning needed to change a little bit.
And some of those changes and stuff like that would come through stem education, which is one of the core pillars, improved stem education and, and stem, you know, opportunities. In that we're actually doing, we opened this up to Jackson, Josephine and Klamath county. We're doing a seven month Python coding and data [00:22:00] science boot camp.
Alice Lema: Oh, wow. Yeah. Wow.
Dave Tribett: In the top 10 careers, like in the world, it's like coding and data science skills were in the top three. So we, that class is going very well. We're always looking for individuals to support and grants as far as that goes and you can always visit. SORIN.Charity. And there's a lot of ways you can connect, but we want to keep these things free to the community.
And the target was 17 to 22 year olds. They're all doing fantastic. And on the other side, we're working on paid internships and jobs to improve attention. So that's
Alice Lema: Wow. And we need that so desperately it's one of the, the problems of our economic situation here is we just don't have tech. We don't have tech people. We don't have tech companies, you know? Yeah. Why, why would a tech company wanna relocate here?
Dave Tribett: Yeah we actually, and I hear that quite a bit, but we actually do out of like [00:23:00] top 25 tech companies, 20 like technologies, IOT, and you know, micro Circuit design, rogue, micro devices. And we have a lot of companies and stuff, but the thing is
Alice Lema: Here in Southern Oregon?
Dave Tribett: Oh yeah. Rogue Micro Devices, Dialed Laser Concepts. We have Cummings, which their focus was embedded systems, power systems and stuff that used to be Bramo. So we do have companies, located great companies located here. The issue is, is a lot of people don't necessarily know about them. And how many people can they continue to take on every single year when we're training these individuals.
So we're working on some very special things. And hopefully I'll be able to talk about the business expo that is gonna be on August 4th, from nine till three at the Rogue Valley Country Club. But this is a one day event. Next year it's going to a multi-day event. It will be amazing, but nice.
Specifically about SORIN so, improve stem education, workforce development, and retention, [00:24:00] and some specialized things we're designing for local businesses and startups to support them.
Alice Lema: Wow. You know, if we could get more of our entrepreneur type candidates to take that step and, and get some traction and be successful, that would be huge to our community. Especially since we lost so many businesses, it's like, what are they gonna do next? .
Dave Tribett: Yeah. And one of the difficult, why we focused on such a, cuz education alone is enough, but it wasn't a chicken or egg kind of thing. We need to have stellar educational opportunities to recruit companies and individuals.
We need to have the work, you know, upskilled workforce that are retained here so that they have workforce. It is across the board. Like these three pillars are crucial to you know, the way that I put it Soren as collaborative innovation. Right. So we're working with all of the companies and we're filling in and adding value where we can.
Alice Lema: Mm-hmm well, that's awesome.
So are you pretty [00:25:00] busy?
Dave Tribett: Yes. I'm a husband you know, and a father. And the nonprofit and businesses, and I'm also about to launch a new technology coming out of beta as well. So, oh.
Alice Lema: Are you allowed to talk about that?
Dave Tribett: Yeah, we can talk about that a little bit.
Alice Lema: Okay. All right. Well spill the beans.
Dave Tribett: So if anybody is curious, visit V3 connect. So V as in Victor, numeral three, connect.com (V3connect.com). That's kind of like a B2B service side of what, what, but we are doing things a little bit differently. So if you visit there, the members of the platform and stuff get quality referrals, marketing. And of course it feeds into the business expo, V3 connect business expo.
But what we're actually doing there is I'm designing some very special things. If you have a product or service that you offer, that's one connection. If you have a deep connection, it's things like you know, shared interests and hobbies and all these different things. We're designing a [00:26:00] system that will create long lasting relationships.
So we're not talking about just a one off, which is fine to business, but we're looking at the lifetime value relationship much more with what we're building for.
Alice Lema: It's like online dating for business.
Dave Tribett: Nobody's putted that way, but that's hilarious.
Alice Lema: That's that's because that's cause you're married. So this is, I have it up here. It's just a beautiful, beautiful website. V3connect.com, folks. Really, really beautiful. What an amazing amazing idea. So when is that coming out of beta Dave.
Dave Tribett: So probably in the next couple weeks, we'll be out of beta and scaling that in the community and being able to onboard you know, almost any type of business that you can think about and connect them with you know, long term, ideal clients.
Alice Lema: Okay. Can I join?
Dave Tribett: We definitely talk about that for sure.
Alice Lema: Okay. Awesome. I'll I'll put in my [00:27:00] request. Well, folks, we're talking to Dave Tribbett, V3 consulting services, business, organizational develop. Very, very interesting conversation. We're gonna have to take a quick break here, but we wanna say thank you to our sponsors, Rogue Valley Association of Realtors, also known as RVAR. John L. Scott, Medford and Ashland and Guy Giles, Churchill Mortgage. This program will be repeated on Sunday at 6:00 PM. And we thank you for joining us. We're gonna be back with Dave Tribbett of V3 consulting and some really interesting things that are gonna be happening in our valley with technology and business. So don't go.
Well, welcome back everybody to the real estate show. Alice Lema broker, John L. Scott here. Beautiful Southern Oregon, talking with Dave Tribbett of V3, Victor three consulting. Had it backwards, Victor three. He's one of my favorite. Favorite guest. So I know it's V3 [00:28:00] services, building business and organizational development and technology, you know, making that connection and helping people do really cool things.
So we were talking about SORIN, which is your 501 3C. That's kind of getting off the ground. And then you mentioned briefly in the last segment something going on at the country club, what what's happening there?
Dave Tribett: Yeah. So. Starting in 2019, we had the first business expo. So it's a V3 connect business expo. This year I'd also mentioned that it's supporting our 5 0 1 C three. So we can ask, really provide more grants and whatnot for the boot camps and training and stuff like that, that we're doing in the area. So we're super excited to be out at the Rogue Valley Country Club. That's gonna be on August 4th and we're gonna be there from nine to three.
We are bringing in some fascinating individuals, that'll be there for vendors. And we hope to see everybody that is able to make it out. And we're gonna have five presenters. [00:29:00] One is an individual who at some point you may like to talk with him, actually, he's fascinating at his core, he is an entrepreneur, family, man you know, connected in the community and everything. And he is gonna share his story. Was originally a YouTube challenge about helping create a very specific type of mobile business and help them to grow their companies to six figures in 12 months.
In 18 months using what he was teaching, he is growing grown an organization to nearly 3 million. And what it is that he's teaching. So he'll be actually presenting on building a business on difficult times.
Alice Lema: And, and what's his name?
Dave Tribett: You could put me right on the spot, huh? That's okay. There'll be so that presenter will be there. No, he's phenomenal. Ed Cutler. He's, he's absolutely amazing. And he is about to launch a new technology out of beta as well. And some of that'll be showcased at the event. And then then we'll have building a brand that matters. That's gonna be David Masters, phenomenal individual.
And then we're gonna [00:30:00] have a presentation from, we're gonna be ideally getting somebody from the clinic and their data side of what it is they do presenting on the most useful data to businesses. We'll be working with somebody ideally from with a very long background of data security.
And I still have to find, so I don't wanna mention his name, but but our, hopefully our keynote is gonna be an individual, has become a very good friend of mine. She lives here local. She started with M and A, when she was 17 years old, she's a published author. She's developed technologies also around helping companies have a smooth transition process upon selling and so on and so forth.
She's absolutely amazing. We're gonna be doing teasers in our V3 connect, LinkedIn and our V3 connect Facebook. So that's gonna be a lot of fun. So we'll tease a little bit of this out. And and then we have people coming from all different directions to be at the expo to add value network and just [00:31:00] connect with other like-minded individuals and entrepreneurs.
Alice Lema: That is so helpful if you run a small business or you want to start a business being around other business people, whether they're in your field or not, it really is inspiring. And it's helpful to share those ideas. And it is hard. It's hard to be a business right now.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. And a lot of the networking events prior to if everybody ever put together a networking event, you know, how much work it is. A lot of those organizations are not in the near term, gonna come back with an in person event.
So this is very unique. Yeah so we're gonna have you know, amazing variety of companies that are gonna be there. They're so focused to share what they do. And try to see if they're able to add value to what it is that you and your listeners do.
Alice Lema: That's wonderful. And that's August 4th at the country club. Mm-hmm in Medford. Okay. Very cool. And it's nine to three. It's gonna be nine am till 3:00 PM. Yes. [00:32:00] Okay, perfect. And how much is it to go to that?
Dave Tribett: Well right now, and that's a great question, I can share the link with you. If people pre-register, tickets are $7, a hundred percent of the ticket, just seven, seven bucks. Yeah. Seven bucks. So normal ticket is $10, but if I share this code with you and your listeners, you get a discount code. Those go on sale tomorrow actually.
Alice Lema: Oh, that's great. Gonna come on sale tomorrow. 8:00 AM. Okay. Are you gonna tell us the code?
Dave Tribett: It's a very long code, so it's okay. I can share it with you and then hopefully it'll be on the post. It's also, it's also shared through our V3 connect, LinkedIn, and it's also on our V3 connect Facebook page as well. Okay. But it's a super long event, right? Link, so, oh, okay.
Alice Lema: Okay. And what about live streaming? Are you gonna live stream?
Dave Tribett: You know, that's a good question. I know the event is gonna be you know,
Alice Lema: I would pay $7 just to be able to do that.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. You know, so we'll, we'll see what we end up doing. [00:33:00] Last time it was pictures, audio and video recording. That would be fun to, to livestream. I may need to talk.
Alice Lema: Yeah. Livestream is tricky, right?
Dave Tribett: It can be for sure. It's not a perfect science. It can be for sure. But I'm so excited about like where this is going.
And next year, like I said, it's going to be a multi day event and we're gonna have, I mean, the plan is to have amazing speakers, even more vendors. We're planning to have workshops, breakout sessions, training for local business in order to,
Alice Lema: Oh, that'll be helpful. That's great.
Dave Tribett: We're planning and we're also planning and I, I don't know how this will come together yet, but we're planning on doing launching some special services that are really needed in our area. And we're planning on maybe doing like a a pitch contest with grants for, for the winners of that. So we're planning on doing some really cool stuff.
Alice Lema: Like, like a mini shark tank sort of, but for, for grants.
Dave Tribett: [00:34:00] We'll see how that all comes together, but we're super excited about that.
Alice Lema: Yeah, that's great. Well, and that's what we need. We need people who can practice. You know, before they do their real, their real presentation.
Dave Tribett: And ideally we'll team up with local organizations. It won't be all, you know, we're not recreating the wheel. So we'd like to incorporate as many local organization as companies as possible into the work that we're doing there.
Alice Lema: Mm-hmm well, there's a lot of hidden talent in Southern Oregon. I'm always shocked to find out, you know, so, and so started this business and now like everywhere in the world. And yeah, we're a very creative bunch, very resilient bunch here in Southern Oregon.
Dave Tribett: Isn't that an amazing, yeah. That is such a great point. You know, we don't know necessarily all of the amazing companies. We don't necessarily know all of the amazing talent. And for many years, people tell me, and this is, I am hearing from the community, the, the businesses don't think the talent's here. So sometimes they relocate [00:35:00] and the talent doesn't think the jobs were here. So they relocate.
We need to retain and build you know, this, this valley and not everything is gonna be high tech, high tech, high touch. But we are gonna meet the needs and partner with individuals to meet the needs of our community and in amazing ways.
Alice Lema: Well, that integration will be helpful cuz that is, that is the opinion of most everybody there's no good jobs and there's, you know, no talent, especially in the tech. So you've cleared that up for me today.
Dave Tribett: Yeah. Yeah. And, and I would say that it's, it's not necessarily true, but there are a lot of things that we're working on and that we plan to partner with people to improve things exponentially for our community overall. Cuz current and future generations have an important role to play.
Alice Lema: Well, and then we get to stay here and then all these people get to stay here too.
