Tyson SalesCon19

We are blessed with some incredible corporations headquartered right here in NWA. Among the largest are Walmart, Tyson, JB Hunt, Sam's Club and George's to name a few. This year I had the opportunity to photograph Tyson Salescon 19. For two partial days I created around 250 headshots of attendees, they were all very appreciative of the photography, the care and diligence in making them happy with the results.

I had the honor to meet and photograph Tyson CEO Noel White and the CCO Scott Rouse with the people who were awarded. They were both there congratulating the honorees and those who were retiring, this was impressive. Part of any successful corporation is the accolades given to top performers and the encouragement to those who could be doing better.

We all know how global Tyson is and there are a lot of places that serve Tyson that we may not know about at all. I found out earlier this year the fat and grains that Tyson provides to other companies world wide that I had no idea about. I also was surprised at first, then it all made perfect sense, that Tyson is one of, if not the largest, provider of leather world wide. To me this is an example of not letting anything go to waste.

A few days after the event, well over 100 people had downloaded their headshots and the people at Tyson HQ had received many great compliments and positive feedback from everyone across the country loving their photos. I had the opportunity to photograph headshots from Tyson associates from all over the country, from California, Virginia, Arizona, Connecticut, New Jersey, Ohio, Chicago, just to name a few (and of course, NWA).

This is a few of the photos taken…

Diplomat of the Year

Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce Diplomat of the Year Keith Branch with George Turner

Being a Diplomat for the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce takes time, but is rewarding with the new friends you make, meeting new business owners and being a bigger part of the community. As a Diplomat, we are representatives of the chamber at business ribbon cuttings, Morning Coffee events, Business After Hours, driving for Meals on Wheels and other voluntary events. The more I volunteered and was out meeting new people and learning more about the new things going on in Fayetteville, the more I enjoyed it.

I became a diplomat for the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce, officially, January 2017, in November I shared the honor of being Diplomat of the Year with my friend George Turner, University of Arkansas. We were tied with the amount of work we had done. I was very surprised when it was announced at the annual Chamber Banquet by Patrick Harrington, Lewis Automotive. This year has flown by and I'm thankful to have gotten to know the fellow diplomats who also give so much of their time.
