We are members of and recently went to Chicago for one of their networking events. It was hosted by their president, Joy Kilgore, who is an absolute pleasure to be around and is an expert in building relationships that result in opportunities for creating advantageous business connections. We were able to rub shoulders with some of the elite in the remodeling industry from Whirlpool Corporation, Cambria, Case, Kohler and many more. Our first day began with an architectural river cruise as an ice breaker for the group. Our next day was plump full with motivational speakers discussing knowing and understanding your clients, developing strong media relationship, identifying gaps and downtime in your business as well as how to build better customer service models. The most motivating factor after a day filled with meetings is that you can hardly sleep at night because you have a pool of amazing ideas that you can’t wait to implement. We would highly recommend looking into joining a networking group in your area of expertise. You will see the benefits of being a part of a group like this unlike any other programs you have been a part of hands down.
In our world of economic uncertainty and also being cautiously optimistic for what this next year has in store for us being able to share stories and ideas with your peers is a great way to stay on top of your game. Most networking groups will either have a topic of discussion or break you out into more personalized and specialized groups. Usually there will be a few speakers chosen to give presentations to inspire you as well as open communication brainstorming sessions where you are able to bounce ideas off of one another.
