WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Participants will be principals, owners, partners or representatives of a BEACON Member business. There is no limit to the size of the Member business. While many BEACON Members are in job transition, Business Networking Roundtable events may be attended ONLY by Members who either have a recognized (registered) business entity or work for one.
As a participant, you will share “the story of your business” – strategy, target clients, business development techniques, etc.
As a participant, you get the opportunity to develop 12 new “Brand Ambassadors” - each with a clear understanding of the value proposition of your business.
As the Host, Michael Gidlewski will introduce all the participants to the challenge he faces in developing his consulting practice.
After 25 years in the wholesale sporting goods distribution business, I wanted the freedom to do what I want, when I want it and for whom I wanted. That led me to buy a franchise opportunity with Success Motivation Institute and Leadership Management International.
Our mission is to develop leaders and organizations to maximize their full potential. Backed by over 50 years of global experience, we offer a number of products and services supported by a proven system that can make a measurable impact on both individual and company performance, as well as the profitability of your business. Our products are accessible in more than 25 languages, and over 80 countries.
Leadership is an integral part of a thriving society. Most employees are not engaged in business and most employees leave the business because of their direct manager. Engagement and accountability are critical success factors in any business so how do we tie it all together? We have a tool box of structured programs, assessments and platforms to drive results, engagement and accountability.
Considering this environment, Michael will ask each participant to offer their ideas, insights and wisdom relative to his Challenge Questions:
“How can I get my messaging clear and concise so prospects know exactly how I can help them grow their company and engage their employees?”
“How can I create a simple visual or map so prospects can get a quick glance into what we do and how we can help them grow?”

GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPANTS
A Business Networking Roundtable (BNR) event is a Member business-focused event designed to enable Members to share information about their business with other Members and for participants to learn about other Member businesses in a focused and moderated setting. The Business Networking Roundtable events are for Members who are in business and who wish to do business with other BEACON Member businesses.
The purpose of the meeting is business networking and designed to be a better way to learn more in-depth knowledge about other Member’s businesses with whom participants may want to engage, collaborate and or recommend to their business network.
