If you want to broaden your perspective on getting more leads; if you are dead serious on learning about someone's business so that you might give them a lead to perhaps get a lead; if you are committed for one hour every other week to meet with like-minded individuals who want to grow their business and yours.... we encourage you to attend one of the SME Cleveland networking groups.
When networking is successful it's a little like chemistry, art and passion coming together for everyone to benefit. It's the 30-second elevator speech, perfecting professional development, handing out business cards, sharing success stories and frustrations or sitting around a table with a timer to hop from one person to another. Our Business Connections groups have all of this and more!
What's different about SME Business Connections is that there is a passion to share information, really get to know your fellow colleagues and brainstorm how whom you know might be a profitable and yes, lucrative introduction to another person in that room. There are no timers or buzzers going off to limit someone's feedback, yet everyone knows that this isn't a coffee klatch, but an hour of your time that could be a critical introduction to the next big project that will make your quarter or even your year!
We offer three Business Connection groups — Downtown, Eastside and Westside which meet every other week. We're always looking for more dynamic and energetic members that share our vision and enthusiasm.
