Well, another perfect morning for the Appleton PNW meeting today with 14 attendees including three first time attendees! Welcome Ellen Davis from Fox Cities Sign & Lighting Services, Craig Cummings from Hawkpoint Technologies and Rich Stockheimer with Alpha Asset Strategies. Our email list stands at 68 who have attended at least one meeting of PNW Appleton.
The question of the month was what you do/recommend to retain customers.
Comments included building trust, having integrity, be client focused, add value, solve problems they have or should be aware of, communicate, provide honest feedback and find ways to make your clients business better.
Susen Trial from Practical Safety and Health Solutions gave a presentation on a new software product she is developing and seeking investment in. She was looking for feedback on her presentation regarding the opportunity this product can bring to the marketplace.
If you have ideas or suggestions to add value to the monthly PNW meetings, please email me. I am looking for good questions of the month that will share insight with others and find common interests that can build relationships and referrals.
Also, if you would like to meet with someone in the group, please reach out to them directly or let me know and I will include you in the small groups with them at a future meeting.
If you were not able to make today’s meeting and would like to join a group for coffee, my group is meeting July 6th at 8am at Atlanta Bread Company on Casaloma Drive in Appleton. Ellen Davis from Fox Cities Sign and Craig Cummings from Hawkpoint are in my group. Three other groups are meeting as well if you want to reach out and inquire on other dates/times that are scheduled to join a small group meeting for coffee or lunch.
