In The Community

LEARN ABOUT WHAT WE DO AS A TEAM

Our In The Community page is a portfolio of images and short stories showcasing what LeadRival does and who we are; as a company, individuals, but most of all as a team.

VOLUNTEERING

Every year, we volunteer with many different organizations around the Fort Worth/Keller Area. LeadRival firmly believes that it is our social responsibility to give back to our community. It helps us develop as a team while allowing us to help others in need. The more we improve our community, the more we improve as a company.

LEADRIVAL VOLUNTEERS AT CHRIST’S HAVEN

Volunteering is something that we have set a goal to do once a quarter. It not only betters the community, but it also helps everyone at LeadRival grow and work as a team.

For Q3, we offered our time to Christ’s Haven, where they asked us to help out with updating their main offices for the first time in 8 years. It’s often hard for non-profit businesses to set aside funds for repairs, especially when kids are their main priority. That’s where we came in! Our team was able to go in and help make the work environment better, therefore making the fostering environment better for the disadvantaged children. There is nothing that we want more than for children to have a safe and caring environment to grow up in. Kids are the future!

 

 

Christ’s Haven For Children is a place for abused or neglected children to lead a normal and safe lifestyle.

The children receive medical and dental care, counseling, and tutoring as needed in a warm and loving home under the care and guidance of full-time house parents. Through the years at least 5000 children have been served by this program. This is why donations are so important to keep things running smoothly.

LEADRIVAL ATTENDS NOSSCR & WILG

NOSSCR and WILG are LeadRival’s last conferences of the year, which wraps up one of the best years of being an exhibitor we’ve ever seen. It’s been a time where we’ve learned more about the legal space, gotten to recieve in-person feedback from so many of our clients, and we’ve partnered with some great firms that we want to help grow.

The NOSSCR Fall Disability Law Conference in Phoenix, Arizona was amazing as always. This year, it was held at the Westin Kierland, so there was an equal amount of mingling and golf playing that happened.

The WILG Annual Convention was probably our best convention of the year because we were able to bring Google in as a speaker to discuss marketing your firm with Google and Youtube. There were many great things to learn and we hope to bring them along with us to future conferences as well. That wraps up our conferences for the rest of 2017, but we hope to see some familiar faces at NTLS in February!

LEADRIVAL ATTENDS NACBA, NOSSCR, NELA, AND AAJ

Summer is always the busiest time for Brian and Chris because LeadRival has the opportunity to be an exhibitor at some of the best conferences of the year. We provided leads to over 12 different practice areas, which is why it’s so important to us to make an appearance at bankruptcy, social security disability, employment law and trial lawyers conferences.

On top of attending these conferences as a returning exhibitor, we also wanted to show off the new LeadRival look! Over the summer, we decided to refresh our brand for the first time in years! Our new look definitely turned heads, which is why we felt it was important to tell firms how they can do it too!

We had such an amazing time meeting our current, as well as getting the opportunity to speak to tons of new firms who are interested in growing their practice. It’s been a great summer conference season and we’re excited to see what’s in store for this fall!

LEADRIVAL ATTENDS NTLS AND AAJ TO START OFF 2017

To start off our winter conference season, LeadRival attended the National Trial Lawyers Summit 2017 and AAJ 2017 Winter Convention. Jumping between Miami, Florida and Austin, Texas was worth it for two great conferences.

Chris and Brian were able to greet lawyers from around the nation all from our booth. There was always a busy moment, but taking time between sessions to speak to current clients and potentially future clients is our number one priority. They also had the chance to play golf with the guys from Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano at Doral. We look forward to seeing everyone at the next conferences in a few months!

Next up is NACBA’s 2017 Annual Convention in May, so don’t miss it!

 

 

LEADRIVAL VOLUNTEERS WITH ACH FOR THE HOLIDAYS

ACH Volunteering - LeadRivalACH Child and Family Services is LeadRival’s go-to organization to volunteer at during the holiday season. They’ve spent their time helping bringing smiles to the faces of children who have had a rough upbringing. At their newest location, they have brought together thousands of gifts that have been donated by those hoping to spread holiday cheer. This year, we were able to help out with setting up Santa’s Workshop by organizing the gifts and preparing the present wrapping stations. It’s important to bring a sense of normality to those who have broken families and hearts, which is why this organization is so important to us. The thought that we have made an impact this year brings us together as a company and betters each and every one of us.

ACH Child and Family services is a non-profit organization that has designed programs to prevent child abuse, neglect and family separation. There are many volunteer opportunities throughout the year, so if you are interested in learning more about ACH or getting involved, check out their website.

 

LEADRIVAL ATTENDS NOSSCR IN SEATTLE, WA

NOSSCR Fall Conference - LeadRivalThe National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives held their 2016 biannual conference in Seattle, Washington and we got the chance to attend again. LeadRival has been going to these for quite some time and it’s refreshing to always meet new attendees as well as old friends.

With the conference being in Seattle, it was easy for Brian and Chris to adventure out to some great local stops for some end-of-day fun! Whether they were visiting Lola’s for the best doughnuts in Seattle (and maybe in the U.S.) or enjoying a round at Chambers Bay – home of the 2015 U.S. Open,  they were sure making everyone stuck at the office wish they were there!

LeadRival had a great time and we can definitely say that this was one of the best conference seasons yet! Next up, we will be at The National Trial Lawyers Summit 2017 in Miami, FL. We hope to see you there!

 

LEADRIVAL ATTENDS AAJ 2016 IN LOS ANGELES

Chris, Bria, Sarah and Brian at the LeadRival Booth - AAJ ConferenceThis year’s American Association of Justice Convention was unforgettable for all who attended. Between having amazing sessions and an even more spectacular exhibitor hall, there were no complaints from us!

The AAJ Reception consisted of an unexpected appearance from the amazing Kenny Loggins. That could’ve been the only thing we attended and it would’ve still been phenomenal.

Aside from meeting with our current clients and signing up new ones, we got to have some fun as a team…and not just at Gacovino Lake’s oxygen bar. Eating at fantastic restaurants, exploring the Santa Monica pier for some fun and volleyball, and even driving around Beverly Hills made the trip worthwhile. Check out our conference

We hope to see everyone again when we attend the next AAJ conference. If you missed us at AAJ, check out our online calendar to see where we will be next.

AAJ is designed to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms. This description was taken from the AAJ website.

LEADRIVAL VOLUNTEERS FOR EARTH DAY 2016

Christs Haven 2016Earth Day falls on the 22nd of April every year, and we felt it’d be a great time to have the LeadRival team volunteer in our community. We were able to lend a hand around Christ’s Haven’s campus for disadvantaged children. This is normally their time to take volunteers for their Spring Cleanup, but we were able to help out in their food pantry. Christ’s Haven runs completely off of food donations, which is why it’s important to make sure the food received is safe for children to consume.

Christ’s Haven For Children is a place for abused or neglected children to lead a normal and safe lifestyle.

The children receive medical and dental care, counseling, and tutoring as needed in a warm and loving home under the care and guidance of full-time house parents. Through the years at least 5000 children have been served by this program. This is why donations are so important to keep things running smoothly.

During the holidays, they get together thousands of gifts to give to children in need to make their holiday season memorable. This year we helped bring in donated gifts and cleaning up after Santa’s Workshop! During Santa’s Workshop, children can pick out gifts for their foster family or friends. It’s amazing to know that the community comes together to allow children to experience the selfless act of bringing happiness to others. We feel honored to help out an organization that brings happiness to children across Fort Worth.

Worksgiving 2015

As the winter months grow colder, our hearts grow warmer with thanks. Here at LeadRival, we celebrated another successful “worksgiving” filled with delicious food and great company. There is nothing like working with a great group of people that can make you laugh and appreciate where you are in life. Each of us come together on a daily basis to create new and effective ways for attorneys to better their business practices. We believe that this reflects onto the relationships that we have with our partners and clients. We would not be where we are today without you, and for that, we want to say thanks!

LEADRIVAL 2015 FALL NOSSCR CONFERENCE

CSl8ZSOUAAA5wu_At the end of last month, Brian and Chris traveled to Denver, Colorado to attend and be an exhibitor at the NOSSCR conference.

It was a great turn out and we got to not only meet new people but also see quite a few of our current clients. We wanted to thank everyone who stopped by our booth because you made our trip worthwhile.

Our Vice President of Business Development, Brian Fairhurst, was able to sit in on a session while Chris and Bria watched the booth and greeted people. We also were able to run into some of our amazing clients for some of the best meals we have ever experienced.

Overall, the trip was a success and we are excited to see everyone next Spring for our future conferences. Until then, we will keep rocking at LeadRival in Texas!

 

LEADRIVAL SPRING CONFERENCE SEASON 2015

NADR20151The 2015 Spring Conference Season was a huge hit! We had a ton of fun traveling all over the country to various conferences including NADR, NACBA, NOSSCR and NELA. We got a chance to meet new people, catch up with some of our awesome partners and take in the sites.

The LeadRival Team wants to extend a huge thank you to everyone that took the time to stop by our booth, or schedule a meeting outside of conference hours. We got the chance to interact with some truly amazing people and hear the great things they are doing to make a difference.

We return back home to Texas with some great memories, new friends and even more drive towards doing everything we can help our partners reach the next level in their business success.

Thanks again to everyone that made this conference season one to remember. We appreciate each and every one of you and can’t wait until the fall when we get to hit the road again.

 

LEADRIVAL TEAM FIGHTS ZOMBIES

LeadRival Zombie AttackThis month after our quarterly meeting we had a team building exercise that was not your typical day at the office. We all met at Room Escape Adventures in Dallas, TX where we were told we would be locked in a room with a Zombie. The room had tons of puzzles, riddles, pictures, math problems and clues that would unlock the key to escaping the room. We had one hour to complete this mission. The zombie was chained to a wall but every 10 minutes more of his chain was released so he was able to reach more of the room. We were told he would have full access to the entire room by the time the hour was up.

Our mission was to work as a team to answer the clues and find the correct combination to the lock that would release the key so we could all escape. We lost a few team members to zombie attacks and a few brave souls that sacrificed their lives in the game so the team could retrieve an important clue and move forward completing the mission.

We had a ton of fun and learned a lot about everyone’s strengths when pressured to perform under stress. Even though we all knew the zombie was an actor, you would be surprised how many screams came from that room as he jumped at us. Below are a few pictures of our team after the exercise. If you have a chance to try a room escape exercise in your city we highly recommend it!

 

LEADRIVAL HOLIDAY GIVE BACK PROJECT

GiveBack6The LeadRival team likes to take some time each year to help out in our community. One of our favorite organizations to be a part of is the ACH Child and Family Services, which helps to restore families and broken hearts through various programs. We have become regulars at the office in downtown Fort Worth during the holidays. This year we helped organize donated gifts for foster parents to shop for their kids. The Forth Worth community really poured into these kids this year, the donations were overwhelming. It was a great feeling to know that so many kids were going to have a great Christmas.

We had such a great time getting to know the staff, working together and learning about the new programs ACH  has established to better help children and families in the downtown Fort Worth area. The ACH staff works hard to ensure every child in their care has what they need physically, mentally and emotionally. We are honored to be apart of such a great cause.

LEADRIVAL AT THE NOSSCR CONFERENCE IN LAS VEGAS!

NOSSCR_2The LeadRival Team had a great time at the NOSSCR conference in Vegas this year. The best part of our job is getting out of the office to meet new people and catch up with old friends.

We had a little downtime and was able to check out the Hoover Dam and we also managed to get in a round of golf with some of our partners. The course was beautiful and the weather was perfect.  Below are a few pictures of our week in Las Vegas at the NOSSCR Conference. A big thank you to everyone that stopped by our booth or scheduled one-on-one time to learn about call center services. You made our trip a blast!

 

 

LEADRIVAL SPRING CONFERENCE SEASON

Over the past few months, the LeadRival team headed east for various conferences including Prevail User Group, NADR, NACBA, NOVA, and NOSSCR.

We had such a great time making memories with partners new and old. Thank you to everyone that took the time to stop by our booth and say hello! We appreciate each and every one of you and can’t wait until the fall when we get to hit the road again.

 

 

LEADRIVAL SCAVENGER HUNT!

Scavenger10The LeadRival Team strongly believes in both working hard and playing hard. Last month at our quarterly meeting our boss, Kye, surprised us with a scavenger hunt that took place all over the city. Each item was allotted a certain number of points depending on the difficulty or distance. We separated into teams and had to get as much accomplished on the list as possible before our 3pm meeting time at a local pub.

Some teams had better luck than others, but we all had such a great time working together and discovering creative ways to achieve each task. Learning to work with different types of people can be an amazing asset. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a team project or trying to find a hot pink limo, if you have the mindset to succeed and have fun, there is nothing you can’t accomplish together.  If nothing else, we walked away with some great stories, lots of laughs, and happy memories.

 

OH, THE SWEATER OUTSIDE IS FRIGHTFUL…HOPE YOUR HOLIDAYS ARE DELIGHTFUL!

Holiday Card Social

A TIME TO GIVE BACK!

ACH_Volunteer_Fort-Worth1During the holiday season, the LeadRival team makes an extra effort to help out in our community. Last year’s volunteer project with the ACH Child and Family Services was such a rewarding experience that we decided to get involved with them again this year.  The ACH is such an amazing organization, they help mend families and bring people together during the holiday season, by turning the rooms into a Christmas Town where kids can shop for gifts for their families. This year we put our creativity and craft skills to work to help decorate for upcoming events.

We had such a fun time working with other volunteers, getting to know the staff, dancing to Christmas music      and learning about all the different ways ACH helps children and families in the downtown Fort Worth area. The ACH staff works hard to make sure children are provided for and families are mended. We are honored to take part in their efforts this holiday season.

LEADRIVAL AT THE NACBA CONFERENCE IN NEW ORLEANS!

NACBA1We had such a great time at the NACBA Conference this year. As our fall conference season comes to a close, this conference was bitter sweet. We were so happy to meet new friends and see some familiar faces. This was also an awesome opportunity for us to introduce our new account manager, Victor, to our partners that attended the conference. We have had such a good time with our football theme as well. Congratulations to Sandra Hibsch, who won the awesome Drew Brees autographed football.

We had a few first timers on this trip so we had to check out some of the local sites.  We had a beautiful view of the Mercedes Benz Superdome from the hotel that looked gorgeous at night.  Of course, we couldn’t leave without checking out Bourbon Street. I think Pat O’Briens was our favorite stop. We appreciate everyone who took the time to stop by our booth! We are looking forward to seeing you again next year!

WE MADE IT BACK HOME SAFELY FROM AAJ IN SAN FRANCISCO!

LeadRival-AAJ-Conf-SF-2013LeadRival made it back home safely from AAJ in San Francisco. That might sound like a casual comment, but when face to face with a brown bear in Yosemite (see below), at home safe takes on a different meaning. We also thought we’d share some other cool sights from our trip to NorCal.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by our booth to say  hello! As always, it’s great to get out and meet face to face with the people we work with. We are looking forward to seeing you on the road again soon!

Around the holidays, the amazing workers at ACH gather gifts and donations from local businesses and individuals so that the children in their foster care programs may have a good Christmas. The LeadRival Team devoted a day to helping these wonderful people take inventory, sort gifts and organize rooms for Christmas parties for the kids.

It was such a great experience learning about the different programs ACH has for both children and families. The hard work and loving care put into the well-being of each child is truly remarkable and we were honored to help out such an amazing organization.

LEADRIVAL FIGHTS HUNGER… AND WINS!

We volunteered at a Texas food bank for the HolidaysDuring the Holiday season, we took a trip to the Tarrant Area Food Bank in Fort Worth to offer up our muscles and support.  It was cool to be a part of the process.  Our duties consisted of 2 main areas:  going through all types of food, determining what is still edible and what is not.  And second, creating lunch sacks for children. It was amazing seeing not only our LeadRival team working together for a great cause, but also to get in that team environment with complete strangers.  Every single person we met was great, and in the process we’ve found some new friends!  We plan on helping this great food bank every year.

Tarrant Area Food Bank is a private 501(c)(3) not-for-profit serving Tarrant and 12 neighboringcounties on the west side of the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Metropolitan Area. As a North Texas food bank that serves more than Tarrant County, our name is Tarrant AREA Food Bank. –this description was taken from the food bank website, http://www.tafb.org/AboutUs.html
