Ronald Fowlkes is Now a Part Owner of FirstSpear

Dedicated father, hockey enthusiast and director of business development at Eagle Industries Unlimited and FirstSpear, two of the most respected tactical gear manufacturers on earth. Ronald Fowlkes is all of these and more.


Ronald Fowlkes’s love for hockey stems from his passion for teambuilding and commitment to protecting and helping one another. On his Medium-blog Ronald explains his interest in hockey and why certain elements of the game are changing for example, fighting in hockey has decreased substantially and is not as important as it used to be. However, Ronald goes on to explain how fighting will always be a part of the game, to protect your teammates from illegal hits and to develop camaraderie that only exists in team sports and combat.


Ronald Fowlkes has had team building experiences during the first Gulf War where he served for four years. He was meritoriously promoted twice during his tour of duty and as a marine he understands the value of protecting the man standing next to you. He took part in both, Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm.


After leaving the military Ronald felt he needed to do more for his country and those he served with so, he joined the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Origination (JIEDDO). This organization eradicates enemy IED threats on the ground protecting friendly forces and their vehicles. Almost two-thirds of all American casualties came from IED’s during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Ronald’s experience in the marines helped JIEDDO improve its detection capacity and reduce the number of casualties from IED and bomb threats.


After several years, Ronald returned to Missouri where he joined the St. Luis metropolitan police department and served as a law enforcement officer, SWAT instructor and Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) leader for thirteen years. Everywhere Ronald went he improved the tactics, leadership and management style. He increased the teamwork of the entire organization at JIEDDO and the St. Luis police department. As an HRT team leader he trained countless recruits and took part in over 250 high-risk entries every year.


Ronald brought down gangs and reduced the violence and narcotics distributions in his community making it a safer place for everyone. After taking his community back from gangs and violence he can couch his son’s hockey team on weekends with out fear or disruptions.


Today, Ronald works as the director of business development at both Eagle Industries Unlimited and FirstSpear. Both companies produce high-quality outdoor gear and tactical equipment. As director of business development Ronald oversees the training of over 150 Eagle Industries employees and improves and develops new technology and products that are more functional and robust. Ronald used FirstSpear products in the marines as well as during his law enforcement days. It is a fitting end to a relationship as Ronald is now a part owner of FirstSpear.


Bob Reina Introduces Live Meetings Application.

The world of video marketing has been electric with innovation over the past decade and no company has done more to make it happen than Talk Fusion. Based out of Tampa, FL, Talk Fusion is one of the foremost innovators when it comes to producing and releasing video marketing solutions to companies in need. Talk Fusion has been capably led by their charismatic leader Bob Reina for the past ten years and it was he who took to the press in order to introduce their most interesting product yet, Live Meetings. The Live Meetings marketing application could be a true game-changer in the digitally-driven world that we are currently living in.


So, what exactly makes Live Meetings special? Why is Bob Reina taking to the proverbial rooftop to let everyone know that this product is available? Well, the primary reason is simple: the Live Meetings application is an essential product for companies that want to broadcast their message far and wide by way of video. Live Meetings is a video conferencing application that has been built on the back of WebRTC technology. The primary structure of the application is built for companies to broadcast their message to upwards of 500 people at a time with up to 15 hosts rotating their time on camera.


Now, if LIve Meetings sounds similar to other

video broadcasting applications, that is only a superficial observation. The truth is, Talk Fusion is one of the few companies to turn to and embrace WebRTC technology as a platform but they won’t stay alone for long. WebRTC technology allows customers to integrate marketing applications without having to download special programs or install special browser plugins. All that you need for the Live Meetings application to function is a linked URL, that’s it. From there, the WebRTC coding allows the video broadcasting application to work across platforms with ease.


Bob Reina and the Talk Fusion team have been carefully crafting their marketing toolbox for the past decade. Reina, a former sheriff’s deputy, has turned wholesale to video marketing after finding success with his company early on. Reina and CTO Ryan Page continue to craft industry-changing products that help companies reach out to their consumers and effective and efficient ways. Live Meetings is the latest tool to be released on the market but it certainly won’t be the last and companies looking to keep up in the industry would do well to take notice. Learn more:
