Authentic Connections Will Cascade Into Referrals
Referral business should require little work.
Being referred won't happen as often as you'd like if you aren't actively engaged in networking experiences. I'm not talking about "speed networking" or other gimmicks that emphasize your success based on the number of cards you acquire.
Dames Bond is all about making authentic connections. Our strategy is creating social- based, educational, motivational and inspirational events where every guest leaves inspired to be their personal and professional best.
