A Huge Thank you goes out to Lou Rodriguez of Rodriguez Consulting who hosted yesterday’s Roundtable. The impactful topic, “The Power of Mentors” created a platform for an amazing conversation. BCA Members learned about Rodriguez Consulting’s work on all the Philadelphia water systems including Fairmount Water Work’s Museum! It was fascinating to learn Philadelphia’s original water system consisted of tanks and pipes made of wood!
Many members contributed their thoughts including Mitch Weinick, who differentiated the terms Advisor, Role Model, Coach, and Mentor for the group. Mentors can take any role in life, and are valuable at any age, and many members agreed it is important to mentor those who are younger. Phil Jaurigue and Brian Lipstein contributed that it can be lonely at the top of your company, so learning from those you mentor and taking advice from others is important.
Thanks to all the BCA Members who contributed their time and energy to the BCA “Braintrust” and enjoyed a beautiful day out at Fairmount Water Works!

Thank you to Hy and Rich Goldberg of Safian & Rudolph Jewelers for hosting a wonderful Roundtable and the last one of 2014. The topic “Implementing and utilizing technology to streamline internal operations and communicate with clients” was highly relevant to the BCA Members in attendance and produced a lot of feedback. Thank you to everyone in attendance for your valuable insight.
Thank You Marc Franzoni of Commonwealth for hosting a great Roundtable at the beautiful Philadelphia Cricket Club. The topic prompted a lot of great response: What was your darkest professional moment, and how did you over come it? Attendees shared and created an encouraging environment. Key take-aways were, Balance is critical in your life: work, family and health. Keep a positive mindset, stay on the high road, don’t listen to the negativity. Be progressive, embrace change (example technology). Thanks all for your positive attributions to the BCA “brain trust”!
