Join FOCUS St. Louis on Tuesday, April 15th from 6-7pm for a chance for young professionals (ages 21-35) to come and speak to a St. Louis leader in an intimate setting. Ed Reggi will kick off the evening discussing his leadership journey and will open it up for Q & A.
Ed Reggi is a lifelong storyteller--who has the stories to prove it. Ed is the former Digital Strategist for the Nine Network of Public Media where he co-created the weekly television program Stay Tuned. The program represented a first for its kind in public media: social media engagement fueling the entire production, pre- and post-broadcast. Today, Reggi is taking what he learned on Stay Tuned to other media stations and nonprofit organizations. He frequently lectures on the topics of Open Source, social media driven strategies for nonprofits and how digital storytelling will influence the future of marketing. Before leaving the Big Apple to join midwest living, Ed worked as a professional actor and trained at the historic Second City. As a St. Louis transplant, Reggi has managed to create a thriving career in both television and on stage. He has also been a regular on Welcome to Sweetie Pies on the Oprah Winfrey Network. In his spare time, Ed has managed to start a few local cultural events including the 48-Hour Film Project, The St. Louis Improv and St. Louis Fringe Festivals.
