Networking Season is in Full Bloom

The April executives networking events brought together many new entrepreneurs to grow their networks and walk away with tangible knowledge. The Executives Breakfast and Luncheon created a convenient environment for entrepreneurs to offer valuable advice and build strategic connections.

At the Executives Breakfast, guests were prompted with the question: What are your best practices surrounding networking? Here are a few of the many responses:

Morrie Elstein, Vice President, Cendrowski Corporate Advisors: Take the high road and become a trusted partner. Everyone is always thinking about how to grow their business, and who their next client will be. Separate yourself by offering to help them grow their company. “How can I help you grow your business?”

Mark Meyer, President, ICI Staffing/E&M Development: Follow through on what you say you’re going to do, as it helps build your reputation and credibility. Also, reconnect with those who have supported you in the past. He jokingly added, “Attach yourself to Bill Himmelstein’s hip!”

Bill Himmelstein offered another discussion question at the Executives Luncheon: Most pivotal experience that has changed you and shaped the way you do business? Here are a few of their responses:

Dan Porcaro, CEO, PSM Partners: Listened to the CEO of the company who had a formula for integrating companies with an 80/20 rule. Fire 75% of clients and then over serve your current clients. About 90% of revenue comes from the top 25% of clients. Focus assets on the most essential revenue streams.

Joanna Sobran, CEO, MXOtech: Read the Pumpkin Plan. If you fill your land with lots of little pumpkins, then the big ones will have no room to grow.

Thank you to all who attended!
