After Gus graduated from Texas State in Marcus, he went to Washington, DC to work for a congressman, spending much of his days in a cubicle, which left a lot to be desired. Gus knew he wanted to be in an exciting and fun atmosphere, and after his interview at Evantage, he knew he’d found his home.
One of Gus’ biggest responsibilities—and his most fun—is to facilitate Morning Atmosphere, a high-energy kickoff to the day. Morning Atmosphere incorporates high fives and personal recognition, as well as exercises and drills to teach new members the important tactics for face-to-face interactions. Gus says the event is 80 percent learning—and 20 percent fun—all about positive ideas.
