Mid-Month Updates

Today and tomorrow - last two days to purchase tickets to NEBA luncheon happening this Thursday (July 25) - Attracting & Retaining Highly Successful Employees with Guest Speakers: Julianna Cantwell & Earl Shindruk.  [Purchase your ticket(s) today!]

We saw a phrase recently "Playing to Win" and it resonated with us how every day our efforts work towards this goal.  How often do we take the time to recognize or reflect on the successes along the way? Surveys work very well in giving feedback on how we are servicing our clients and insights on what sets us apart.  What are your clients feedback and how has it affected your business strategies going forward? We love to hear your input - let's talk when we meet at an upcoming NEBA event!

A special thank you for a sold out charity golf tournament event on July 10.  We got word of Tornado and Thunderstorm warning as weather forecast at 10:32 AM on July 10 and it made us worried.  We are grateful to everyone who attended and helped us to raise $1600 in charitable donation for Edmonton Humane Society through golf tournament, silent auction, donation and 50/50 tickets. 

We don't play golf, didn't know how to do a tournament but we had a vision.  Thank you for helping us to make the event fun for everyone. The best feedback we received was when we were told that very strong quality leads at event and high probability of being closed.  Connections and Deals were being made - that's our goal in volunteering to make these events happen! 

We are extremely pleased to have events planned till November with events to be posted.   Check out our upcoming events - there's one morning, noon and after work.  Hope to see you at one of them. 

Special thanks to our association sponsors: Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, TownPlace Suite by Marriott Edmonton South, Good Buddy Restaurant, S Group Chartered Professional Accountants who make it possible for us to host these events.  As a nonprofit organization, we are funded by membership and sponsorship.   Thank you for your support to individuals, professionals and businesses.
