Bob Reina: He Knows What It Is All About

“It” might sound like a simple word, but to Bob Reina, it is anything but simple. He gets “it,” and what I mean by it is that he understands what is important in this life. He does not get bogged down in the details and he does not waste his time on the little things. He understands the big picture and he understands what really matters in life. At the end of the day, when the smoke clears and all is said and done, it is about helping our fellow men and women. It is also about making the world a better place.


That has been the way Bob Reina has run Talk Fusion since 2007 and all of his employees have bought into this and they know it is for real. They have a real chance at allowing people to enjoy life in a way they might have given up on in the past. Now, they can get pleasure out of everything and anything that life has to offer thanks to Talk Fusion, which is a video communications provider. It can be found on the Google Play Store or at the App Store for iTunes. It is well worth taking the time to look into and hoping on board with it as it changes the way people are living their lives. No longer are they are unhappy and miserable at their jobs.


Now, they are finding inner peace and joy because they are finally living the life they have always wanted to live and they have no restrictions. It is all about what makes them happy and what gets them excited. Maybe they have always wanted to be a make-up reviewer and use video technology to post videos and let people know their thoughts. They have wanted to build up a community and make money at it. They can now do that with Talk Fusion.


Bob Reina is also someone that uses Talk Fusion to give back to the community as he made a record-breaking donation to the Tampa Bay Humane Society, which is something that really made a difference in the lives of those animals.


Dynamic Search Partners’ President Announces Scholarship Program

Dynamic Search Partners is one of the top suppliers of talent for hedge fund and private equity industries. Equipped with a 10 year record of their positive work, it should come as no surprise the success they have achieved throughout their tenure. Through configuring relationships with their clientele, Dynamic Search Partners ensures new clients with a network of professionals that have been supplying others with the talent they desire for a decade.

In January Keith Mann, co-founder and president of Dynamic Search Partners made an announcement. He announced that he was creating his own scholarship program. He spoke on the intentions of the program during the announcement. Citing that recognizing the next generations of business leaders, Mann plans to give the scholarship to one graduating senior each year from one particular school. Uncommon Charter High.

Known quite well for his philanthropy, this is just another step for Keith Mann. Giving back to community is quite obviously important to him, and this move cements that. This is not the first time he has donated to schools. In early 2015 Keith Mann, along with his company, Dynamics Search Partners, raised 22-thousand dollars for Uncommon Schools in New York.

Uncommon Schools are a network of over 40 public schools along the New England section of the east coast. Regardless of location, due to distracting done for most public schools, anyone in the city may attend an Uncommon School. While the 22,000 raised is for several different schools, the scholarship is for a specific school in New York.

College planning counselor Joe Frick, of Uncommon Charter High briefly spoke about Mann’s decision to implement this program for the school. He talked on how grateful he was for Mann to implement such a generous scholarship program and confirmed with the reporters that the scholarship was for a four-year school.

Filling over 200 client mandates per year, assisting his clients, and strategically selecting teams to perfectly match clientele, it is a wonder how Keith finds the time to come up with programs such as these. Programs that give back to the community.
