Several new networking opportunities are now available to our Accredited Businesses (ABs) including an all- new LinkedIn discussion group and exciting group networking events.
Many ABs have requested that the BBB offer more opportunities to network with other ABs. Because of this, we have launched an exclusive group on LinkedIn. This group is a way for BBB Accredited Businesses (only) to create discussions, ask questions and share their knowledge with others on business growth, problem solving and how-to-basics. If you aren’t a member yet, then go to http://linkd.in/1nTZMci today and click the yellow join button!
In addition to the new LinkedIn group, we have also started hosting our After 5 Networking Events at different locations throughout the Chicago and northern Illinois areas. Our first event was held at BlackFinn American Grille in Mt. Prospect on April 10. This was a booming success and allowed many of our ABs to network with their peers. A business deal was even made during!
We also hosted our first Lunch & Link Networking Luncheon at Buca Di Beppo in Lombard, IL which allowed everyone in attendance to give their sales pitch in front of the large group of ABs.
Due to the success of these events, we have scheduled our next After 5 Networking Event at CARNIVALE!, located at 702 W Fulton Street, Chicago, IL. At CARNIVALE!, you will have the opportunity to network with other ABs while also enjoying drink specials, food stations, passed hors d’ oeuvres and free professional pictures taken by JorgeTookYourPicture.com! There will also be a FREE drawing for a brunch for four at CARNIVALE.
This event is on June 19th so make sure to sign up today!! Click here or go to bit.ly/1g5SoHo to register for only $20! Make sure to stay tuned for future networking events!
