Contractor networking at Eastern Mass NARI

Posted by Mark Paskell on Thu, Feb 05, 2009 @ 10:19 PM

Last night I attended a great contractor networking event at EM NARI in Natick. Ten contractor coaching clients and friends joined me and the 120 plus attendees. The featured speaker was Adrienne Zoble. She is a nationally known networking expert for the remodeling contracting industry. She was fantastic and shared excellent ideas on how to obtain great results by networking effectively. She also offered strategies on how to maximize results from your existing customer base and the importance of staying in touch with all leads. Everyone I spoke with said they were very satisfied that NARI provided a great speaker and the networking topic was perfect considering the current economy.

Networking for professional contractors at NARI; Sept 10th, 2008

Posted by Mark Paskell on Sat, Sep 13, 2008 @ 10:24 PM

In May my firm, The Contractor Coaching Partnership, joined The Eastern Mass NARI chapter to network with professional contractors. My goal is to help the chapter grow its contractor membership using effective best practice networking strategies.

The theme for the night was to recognize the contractors who earned their NARI certifications.
