Develop This! podcast is published multiple times a week to explore topics related to transformational community leadership including economic development, non-profit engagement, organizational management and policy development. It's a candid conversation with professionals in the economic development realm and inspiring interviews with today's thought leaders.


Co-hosts Dennis Fraise and Jason Hutcheson visited Spencer last month to keynote the Corridor's Business Recognition Luncheon on November 13th. While visiting the Corridor Region, they recorded podcasts about some of the great things happening in the Iowa Lakes Corridor.


Spencer City Manager Amanda Mack spoke with Hutcheson on the importance of Community Placemaking and how she is facilitating placemaking in Spencer.


Fraise spoke with Corridor Vice President Brian Dalziel about the Corridor's 5x5 initiative and Get A Lakes Life.

Fraise also had a discussion with OEI Alumni Jake Jensen (2017) and Corridor Coordinator of Administration and Communication and OEI Alumni Alyssa Petersen (2017) about the Okoboji Entrepreneurial Institute, how the program is organized each year and the impact made on the young entrepreneurs who visit the Corridor region for a week-long learning experience.
