The TAGS Group was founded in 2014 with a mission to help create events and hone messages that build or strengthen the storylines connecting an organization with its target audience.
Our Chief Storyteller
Stacy Leistner, our founder, began his story on a farm in the Midwest where he learned a strong work ethic ... and how to drive a tractor. His formal education concentrated on business and communications with post-graduate training in digital design. His first company was a bartending service staffed by college fraternity brothers; the bride and groom from the first wedding he planned will soon be celebrating their 30th anniversary.
Stacy's professional career has taken him across the country and around the globe to work with companies in dozens of industries. He has designed hundreds of events ranging from small private dinners and social events to large corporate galas. His communications portfolio ranges from consumer product safety to environmental protection ... fashion to food ... financial services to homeland security ... online data privacy to nanotechnology ... standards to toys ... the list continues to grow.
The TAGS Group has a core team that is supported by an extended network of content professionals (writers, editors, proofreaders), digital experts and marketers, as well as event producers, entertainers, florists, graphic artists, photographers & videographers, and other specialized partners that are hand-selected for each assignment.
We look forward to discussing how our team can help your team engage audiences in conversations and experiences that highlight you, your brand and your organization.
