    Jake shares his leadership principles, derived from his faith, in a presentation that is applicable to anyone looking to build trust and have courage in the workplace. The talk will be on TRUST. Jake believes that in any organization the foundation for a healthy and productive culture is trust. Jake will take some time to break trust down into the categories of taking responsibility, remaining optimistic, having unique courage, seeking wisdom, and training to surpass.

    Presented by: Jake Locker

    Jake was born in Ferndale WA and attended Ferndale High School.  He attended the University of Washington and graduated with a History degree.  Jake met his wife Lauren in college and they married in July of 2011.  They have three children Colbie 6, Cooper 4 and Colt is 2.  They spent 4 years in Tennessee while Jake played for the Titans.  They have been back in Whatcom county for 3 years now.  They are co-owners in the Locker Room Fitness and are so thankful to be a part of this community.

    Generously Sponsored by: Waddell & Reed

    Waddell & Reed has had a presence in Bellingham for over 30 years, but was actually founded in 1937 by two World War I veterans, Chauncey Waddell and Cameron Reed. The two men shared an interest in finance and a belief that everyone, regardless of status or net worth, should be able to build a financial plan and take steps toward achieving long-term goals. The company has grown from offering two of the first mutual funds in the industry to offering a wide array of investment and insurance products to serve clients both large and small.
