Co-Hosts for the Night:

Michael Wachholz – Michael is the founder and managing member of Prospeed Motorsport, a producer of high performance brake fluid and related products. Prospeed Motorsport is a dba of Shift!, LLC., a marketing consulting business. Michael also is the founder of a marketing firm focused on providing proven, results-oriented, affordable marketing to the small to medium IT/MSP business

Michael has a 25-year-plus record of achieving outstanding results. Consider these representative examples:

• Created a comprehensive marketing strategy for a championship auto racing team, gaining $1.5 million in sponsorship in less than a year.

• Took an unknown brand to market and earned Official product status with the IndyCar Series, American LeMans Series, SCCA Speed World Challenge, and Skip Barber Racing School within 12 months.

• Developed branding, public relations, and marketing campaign that secured national coverage in three national publications in 60 days, resulting in 133 distribution inquiries worldwide.

• Created a web-based lead-generation system that produced a 31% increase in leads over a six-month period.

Fresh out of high school, Michael showed talent for making things happen. In his first job, he boosted monthly sales by 1000% in a single year. While pursuing a degree in organizational psychology and industrial relations at Hamline University, he worked full time as a sales and marketing specialist, increasing his employer’s gross sales by 38 percent. Over the years after his graduation in 1989, Michael worked similar magic for a series of companies, primarily in the computer, software and travel industries.

Between 2000 and 2006, Michael devoted his skills and energies exclusively to following his entrepreneurial spirit. He founded and was the managing member of Prospeed Motorsport, LLC., a business focused on providing high performance braking packages and solutions to the auto enthusiast and amateur and professional racer. Under Michael’s guidance, the company became the developer and marketer of Prospeed GS610 Maximum Performance Brake Fluid™, which took 4 of the top 10 position including the #1 position with Dan Wheldon in the 2005 Indianapolis 500. Along the this journey Michael cultivated strong business relationships with high-profile marketing partners including Dow Chemical, Indy Racing League, American LeMans Series, Andretti Green Racing, and Performance Racing Industry.

Michael relocated to Denver, Colorado in 2006 on 20 Dec, the day of one of the biggest blizzards in the last 1000 years!

Chophouse In Short – Housed in the old Union Pacific building in LoDo, the Chop House's upbeat atmosphere gives the original railroad decor a modern, sophisticated feel. Large booths offer plenty of people-watching perches along with views of the kitchen and the brew tanks behind the gigantic bar area. Entrees include porterhouse steaks, cedar-grilled plank salmon, veal chops, tuna, pork chops or the daily chef's special. Each comes with sides such as corn bread, house salad, vegetables and potatoes.~Citysearch
