This week was all about recognizing our local, small businesses that help make our city such a wonderful place to live and work. An accolade well deserved many times over. The focus of our luncheon was to talk WITH other business owners, not at them. It’s amazing what you can learn sometimes when you take a moment to stop and just listen. Not only were we able to make some new connections, we were also able to reacquaint ourselves with some of our own members and strengthen some old bonds.
Our President, Keith Wilkinson with Investor’s Group and our Secretary, Shilo Storey with RE/MAX Central – The Real Estate Storey took a few moments to speak about the benefits of networking and how it has helped their businesses move forward. Every invitation, every meeting, every event, every introduction is an opportunity to put your best foot forward and increase your sphere of influence. The old adage is true. It’s not what you know, it’s WHO you know.
Again THANK YOU to everyone that was able to attend last week and congratulations to our door prize winners:
Charlene Codio – Codio Photography
Joel Bates – Axiom Mortgage Solutions
Natalie McCabe – Cam Clark Ford
Finally, we would like to take a moment to say a BIG thank you to the City of Airdrie Economic Development for advertising our event in their monthly newsletter. We would also like to thank City View for also including our TAN luncheon in their Small Business Week events section; and another warm thank you is sent out to the Airdrie Chamber of Commerce for promoting our event in their Chamber newsletter.
Success cannot be achieved completely alone, and we feel Airdrie’s business community exemplifies this spirit of cooperation. Job well done everyone. CHEERS!
