Dear Mr. Sanders and Mr. Hughes of the Vienna Business Network BNI:
Thank you so much for the invitation to join the Vienna BNI members and guests at your "Regional Word-of-Mouth Marketing Event" on December 19th. This event was our initial foray into more strategic outreach and marketing of our services in the Vienna area, and it provided a wonderful introduction to other small businesses in the local area.
Zelos associate Stephanie Spence Diamond attended and shared her very positive impressions of the group. She particularly remarked upon the warm welcome she received and the energy and enthusiasm with which the entire meeting was conducted. She also found it hard to believe that over 100 participants would be able to share information about their businesses and desired referrals in such a short amount of time, but with masterful facilitation and good humor, this feat was accomplished!
The informal networking was also impressive, and we were able to connect with a variety of local businesses as well as with the Mayor of the Town of Vienna, who graciously participated actively in the entire meeting.
Wishing you the best for a successful 2013!
