The Charlotte Business Owners group is a forward thinking gr
oup for business owners to come together\, network\, and learn through hel
Our meetings begin with introductions aroun d the room (while passing around cards and ordering lunch)\, then topical business presentations. After the presentations\, there is more networking and then we wrap-up the meeting.
The Charlotte Business Owners Networking group is a very unique group because it allows you to leverage powerful business tools like....
< br />Your net worth is determined by your network! Our structured networki ng events provide a perfect opportunity to form and nurture lasting busine ss relationships. We also teach you how to become an effective networker.< br />
Each event features presentations that focus on principles you can apply to grow your business.
Interact with fellow business owners to find solutions to the challenges you face. Sometimes all it takes is a fresh p erspective to solve a problem.
Become A Power Networker
As a business owner or entrepreneur\, are you serious about using netw orking to grow your businesses? Networking matters whether you want new cu stomers\, repeat business\, referrals or attention of potential investors. However\, it is seldom taught anywhere and consequently most networkers f ail to get adequate return out of their investment in business networking meetings.Business networking is not about exchanging cards! There are tool s such as elevator pitches\, one-on-ones\, strategic alliances\, follow up s and social media that you need to master. Whether you are a pro or a new bie\, our tools help you tremendously in honing your business networking s kills. Our events are quality events that help you grow into a power netwo rker who gets real business out of networking meetings. We also strive to create a synergistic referral network for you.
Marketing Platfo rm
You can also become a sponsor of the group or by doing a spo tlight presentation. Spotlight presentations are informational/general bus iness type of presentations that are typically non-industry specific.
Knowledge is a business owner’s b iggest asset. Our workshops give you practical tools to help you maintain an edge in the highly competitive world of business.
· Do you know how to set business objectives?
· How often do you do str ategic planning?
· Would you like to master sales skills?
Dedicated business workshops cost hundreds of dollars and most smal l business owners do not have the time and money to take advantage of them . That is why our events feature condensed workshops that focus on just on e aspect of business. What is more\, you get to mastermind as you interact with fellow business owners to find out how the information applies to yo ur business! Become a spotlight speaker and promote your business.
< br />Looking forward to helping you expand your business through referrals and education. Let's make networking work.
