Business Education / Training
Help with professional development by learning sales and marketing tips, how to give effective presentations, polish your elevator speech and learn general business information.
We meet each and every Thursday, in The Meeting Room of the Hampton Inn by Hilton, 89 Meadowvale Dr, St. Catharines, ON L2N 3Z8. Meetings start at 7am sharp and ends at 8:30am.
Weekly, you’ll have the opportunity to provide an infomercial about your business, to let your sales team know what referrals you are looking for and to learn more about your business.
At every meeting, one member will take 10 to 15 minutes to speak in greater detail about his/her business. The topic for discussion is at the speaker’s discretion and following the presentation, members are given the opportunity to ask any pertinent questions.
Each meeting follows the same agenda: We enjoy a hot breakfast, referrals are given, and business is grown – all while having fun and building relationships.
I look forward to our weekly meetings and the friendship/fellowship that comes with it. We’re a tight knit group of like-minded credible business professionals focused on positive attitude with positive results. The meetings give me a chance to inform others on what I do best, how I can help others and what kind of business I’m looking for. I always come away from the meetings feeling uplifted with something gained (and always look forward to next week)!Denise DunkleyDominion Lending Centres – Home Capital Solutions Inc.
When I started The GDC Group in 1997 with my then-partner, it was just the two of us. Shortly thereafter I was asked to join a Referral Networking group to help grow my business. Today there are 5 of us driving our business' success, with an exponential growth in the number of clients and revenue, year over year. That growth is directly tied to my ability to rely on my Referral Networking Partners and have them act as my mentors and my sales team, diving qualified referrals, not unqualified leads.
