Living at the intersection of immersive experiences, community organizing, and network theory, Hugh Weber is focused on building a world-class network of individuals, organizations, communities and ideas that can accelerate our region’s place in the world of creativity, community and innovation. Some in our community heard Hugh speak at TEDxFargo in 2013. Hugh serves as CEO and Curator for OTA, where he leads organizational efforts focused on engagement, experience and external relationships. OTA is a for-purpose organization sparking regional transformation through creative connections and collisions in the OTA states—North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. In 2008, Hugh started as a genuine cry for help from an ordinary dude who wanted to be an extraordinary dad. Dude to Dad grew a social network of 85,000 fathers and an Amazon Parenting #1 Bestseller: Dude to Dad: The First Nine Months and he just released Wisdom for Dad: Advice for Dad in 140 Characters or Less. Hugh lives in the OTA states with his beautiful, intelligent and extremely patient wife, Amy, four year old daughter Emerson and newborn son, Finn.
