WYSO Weekend

Jerry Kenney

We’ve been introducing you to some of the speakers at this year’s TEDxDayton conference. It takes place October 16th at the Victoria Theatre and is already a sold-out event. Today you’ll meet David Gasper, a serial software entrepreneur with a bachelor’s degree in Quantitative Business Analysis from Wright State University and an MBA from the University of Dayton.  Ernst and Young named him “1998 Dayton’s Entrepreneur of the Year” in the high tech category. Here’s David to tell us a little bit more about himself and what he’ll talk to TEDxDayton audiences about.

Today’s WYSO Weekend is all about people – people persevering in their own lives and people changing the lives of others.  Some have made their mark on history and some are still making their mark today.  Just ahead, you’ll meet the latest inductees into the Dayton Region's Walk of Fame and hear their stories. We also have commentaries this week from Dan Patterson and Bob Brecha. Up front, our final TEDxDayton Speaker, David Gasper. See program details below.
