The reason for starting this community is to respond to the gaps in understanding what responsibilities fall under Business Development and other components of the sales funnel, (Branding, Advertising, Public Relations, Marketing). We will help identify the disconnect in communication and more importantly share best practices to obtain a much better result.

Meetings will be both Educational and Social, connecting and helping each other is a top priority. We look forward to your involvement in our community.
