Too many of us are frustrated and tired of the poor performance and results that we are getting from networking as it exists.
It's time that we did something about it. It's time that we changed the system and removed the stench from the word.
There is only one way to do that. Change our approach. That change starts with one and eventually another.
Connectors Circle Conferences is designed to bring business people together for that purpose.
Our inaugural conference on February 2, 2018 "Know Your Personality. Choose Your Team" will assist us in finding out more about who we are in
the marketplace as individuals through a personality assessment and a road map to choosing your inner circle and organizations that fit.
