SPUR Member Spotlight – Griff Wigley
We asked Griff Wigley to answer a few questions about his business, Wigley and Associates.
What does your business do or offer?
I coach business, non-profit, government and civic leaders on the art of leadership blogging and the use of other social media technologies. I work with organizations interested in using online tools to deepen citizen engagement. I produce online events, primarily on public policy issues for government and non-profit organizations. In my free time, I’m chief blogger and moderator for Locally Grown Northfield, a public affairs blog.
What are you hoping to utilize SPUR for?
I want to use SPUR as another means to connect and collaborate with others in the area who are interested in how internet-related technologies can improve our work and civic lives.
What are some things you like about SPUR?
I’m thrilled that SPUR is located in the heart of the vibrant downtown Northfield and all that it has to offer. Among its many amenities, two stand out for me: 1) its large conference/meeting room that includes free use of a digital projector; and 2) its ‘chat booth’ so that people’s private phone and audio-video conversations don’t disrupt others.
What are you hoping to see happen in SPUR’s future?
In the future, I’m hoping that SPUR has so many members that we host weekly Friday afternoon beer/wine/cheese gatherings that draw a large and mildly rowdy crowd.
