Set to host their first public event, the Flagler Tiger Bay Club’s Young Executive Chairman Walker Douglas shares a few insights as to how they’ve prepared for Wednesday’s event, and what the next generation of up-and-coming leaders, are up to.

How is the Young Executives program helping to build your skills as a young executive? 

Every month our speakers force me to think critically in a field that is usually completely unrelated to my own. It keeps the lights on in parts of my brain that don’t get a whole lot of traffic.


What are the top 3 things you’ve learned so far? 

  • There is so much career opportunity in Flagler County for young people
  • Swillerbees is closed on Monday
  • Corporate execs shoot from the hip more than they let on


You’re set to host your first virtual public meeting. Why did you select the speaker and what message(s) do you hope he’ll share with the next generation of young executives?

Today’s politics are divisive. We chose Dr. Baker because his historical approach to understanding compromise and identity politics provides solutions and really unique insight.


Why do you think it’s important to have an organization like Tiger Bay supporting young executives? 

The people who will be making decisions in business and government tomorrow need to know the people who are making those decisions today.


What’s next for the Young Executives team?   

Look out for Young Execs making waves in forthcoming local elections.


Tune in for the first Flagler Tiger Bay Club Young Executives’ webinar on Wednesday, March 31st at 12:30 pm. Open to the public, there is no cost to attend.
