Thank you, Mark from Premier Pharmacy for a great Round Table last week. We had a great experience and learned so much about Premier Pharmacy, the drug industry, and how they can help you.
Some take aways in managing expectations is first and for most, do not make assumptions. Make sure you have clear communications and expectations. Jot down a list of issues so that for next time, they will be covered. And last but not least, make it easier on yourself, hire a Project Manager to free up your time and limit your frustrations.
*Note to self* People do what you inspect; not what you expect!
Please remember to see how you can help Mark and please make sure you schedule time with each other if you don’t know enough about the folks you hung out with at the Roundtable.
With infectious charisma and an untraditional approach, Scott Stratten captivates audiences with unique insight and stories; Fortune 500 companies, including PepsiCo and Deloitte, seek his expertise on effectively connecting digital platforms with customer engagement to increase revenue, loyalty and reputation. Now we are very excited to announce Scott will be our special guest speaker and will captivate BCA at our September Hospitality Breakfast.
We’re in the age of disruption. Today’s business climate is changing at an unprecedented rate. Every week, it seems there is a new strategy, social media site or technology that is a “must use” or a “game changer”. What we lose in this endless quest for the next bright shiny business object is that at the core of business while everything has changed, nothing is different.
A big thanks to Scott and Steve of Gibbons for being such a great host at their Roundtable last week and a bigger thanks to all of you who came out and participated so wonderfully!
There was a lot of learning about relationship building, with many key take aways. A couple of them being.. listen and try to truly connect to the person you are meeting. Understand their value proposition. Also remembering that less is better; focus on less connections but deeper relationships.
Member-to-Member “Shout Out”
by Sam Stroback and Kelli Seiple, Today’s Systems Corporation
This post is part of an ongoing series, learn more!
Today’s Systems would like to give a BCA Shout-out to Brandon Steiger and his team at Synergema. As an office furniture dealership, Today’s Systems called upon Synergema to assist us in updating our website and online presence. As website development strategists, Synergema walked us through the entire updating process. They ensured that our requirements were accurately represented on our new site. Brandon always made himself available when we had questions and used clear language to educate us on current digital strategies. As a company that prides itself on customer service and expertise, Brandon was a perfect fit for us. We were very happy to find Brandon with our same business values and commitment to excellence. We highly recommend Brandon and Synergema to all of our business partners and contacts. Great job Brandon!

We officially invite all members to share their story. On June 23rd, we launched a new segment of our blog called Member-to-Member Shout Out. The idea came directly from Paul Becker, DDP Roofing (thanks Paul). We absolutely love the suggestion, it couldn’t be more BCA, so thanks Paul.
The Member-to-Member Shout Out allows BCA members to make a public statement of appreciation, recognition or gratitude. You can share a story or experience you had with a fellow member, generally share what you’ve gotten to know about a fellow member or spotlight an incredible fact or quality you’ve learned. The options are limitless. If you are unsure of what to write, check out our very first Member-to-Member Shout Out created by Paul Becker.
