Creative Mornings with Steve Conlin

Creative Mornings presents Steve Conlin, founder of Ogden’s Own Distillery. 

Come join us for breakfast, coffee, fellow local creatives and great conversation – first thing in the AM.

Steve Conlin is currently the managing and marketing partner of Ogden’s Own Distillery – he’s the brand developer and strategist for Five Wives Vodka, Underground Herbal Spirit, Porter’s flavored whiskeys and Madam Pattirini Gin brands for the past eight years. Prior to diving into the alcohol industry Steve has had varied and diverse experiences. After attending Weber State University in Ogden, UT, he worked as photojournalist for several years before moving into real estate which led him to owning a mortgage company in Ogden. When the financial crisis hit in 2008 Steve fell back on his journalism experience and published the Ogden Independent monthly magazine for 12 months and, with partners, started Ogden’s Own Distillery in 2009.
Steve has been a resident of Utah for 26 years after transplanting from Austin, TX in the early 90’s, and now lives in downtown Salt Lake City.
Over the years Steve’s passions include live music (left over from the Austin days), bicycling (avid road racer for 10 years) photography (constantly a challenge to make the perfect image.) and travel

Defending Your Design




Intellectual Property.

Do you know what these words mean for your business, for your clients, or for your brand? You should.

Come spend the lunch hour with Parsons Behle & Latimer to learn about what you should be doing to defend your design, and what happens when you don’t.

Parsons Behle & Latimer was founded in 1882 and is one of the largest and oldest law firms in the Intermountain West. With more than 130 lawyers in offices in Salt Lake City, Boise, Idaho Falls, Las Vegas, Reno, and Washington, D.C., Parsons Behle & Latimer serves local, national, and international clients in all areas of business.





Act Like You Know What You’re Doing

Josh Scheuerman is an undeniable force for good. He’s used his dogged determination to enact change in his community, and is an inspiration to those who just don’t know where to start (see: almost all of us). Josh has worked for magazines and newspapers as a designer and photographer of local and national concerts, all without formal training and championed social advocacy and change in his community. 

Josh will speak on mastering the art of “acting like you know what you’re doing”, and getting shit done.
