We thought it might be useful to give our readers and prospective members a little “sneak peek” in to our Thursday morning meetings. Designed to be a lead generation and mentoring group, BCBC has grown multi-fold over the past 17 years!
Here is what to expect!
BCBC members convene “officially” at 7:15 a.m. every Thursday but encourage our membership to arrive by 7am to “catch-up”.
Our first “order of business” is to introduce any visitors and then take turns with our “30-second promotional” – aka the “elevator pitch”. Personalities shine during these 30 seconds as poems, clever slogans and stories are used in many a pitch to garner and maintain interest!
After our 30 -second promotional we then do “Leads and Thank- Yous”. For some, this is the “meat” of the meeting where leads to and from each member are generated. Also, we acknowledge those who have helped grow our businesses , our mentors, and much more.
Old and New business is discussed with upcoming events and “biz tips” being announced. You can see a sample of upcoming events here.
More “food for thought” is offered during our two- ten minute presentations by members. This is truly the educational portion of our meeting and much information has been shared during these 20 minutes. While it seems short in time, it is not “short” in sharing of expertise.
Did we mention that there is breakfast being served and endless coffee and tea being poured throughout our time together!?!
We continue our meeting with a second round of 30-second promotions (and visitors get a full minute here). Then on to our “thought of the week”.
Don’t be surprised to see may a member linger to chat, share more information or go more in-depth about lead generation.
Lastly… the very best part of our BCBC meeting is … friendships, business relationships and mentoring all continue well outside the Thursday morning meetings.
