Beacon is a group of C-level professionals and those who work with C-level executives in establishing and implementing strategies. They come with extensive experience and use networking to enrich their personal and professional lives. Networking is a commitment to developing long term relationships built over multiple meetings and contacts that benefit all those involved. By sharing information or teaching about ourselves and our businesses we build the trust needed to convert people into our allies who continually support us with ideas and referrals.
Building these trust-based relationships means members must:
Think of others first – Give to Get
Accept responsibility for their behavior, including responding promptly to member requests and referrals, and acting with integrity at all times
Respect members by not selling or self-promoting at meetings and events. Specific opportunities are provided to do this.
Effective networking is a critical leadership skill today because it is a key way to collaborate with others to improve mutual performance, launch new initiatives, or simply drive growth. In addition, through your networking among Beacon members you will:
Expand your knowledge base by sharing experiences with people from many different professions or disciplines, industries, and business models
Identify thought leaders who can help you solve issues you face
Find collaborators who can help you improve your competitive position
Tap seasoned, successful executives and leaders for practical and trusted advice on career and business transitions, solutions, and innovations … and return the favor.
