Contacts N' Coffee - May 2021 Edition!

Contacts N' Coffee - May 2021 Edition!

We are thrilled to announce that our May Edition of Contacts N' Coffee will return to an In-Person format! (For those who still wish to participate via Zoom, not to worry. We will have a display set up to allow this participation also.*)

We are also thrilled with our lineup of Featured Presenters! This month we will have Erika Alvarez, Branch Manager for Frost Bank (Frost Bank opened its first location in Northside this month!) and Margi Duncan, Regional Vice President for Primerica Financial Services. These financial experts will be able to provide us with valuable insights as to how we can better pursue our business aspirations and our personal financial goals.

Our Contacts N' Coffee events allow you the opportunity to introduce yourself, your position, the entity that you represent, what it is that your entity provides and, importantly, what entity/entities might make a great referral for you.

It is more important now than ever to reach out and develop strong business connections! We are all in this together and it is a lot better to not have to overcome these challenges that we currently face alone.

Spend a little over an hour of your time to possibly establish those connections that provide the catalyst for taking your operation to a higher level. Remember, sometimes, it takes only ONE connection to make drastic improvements to your income. So what are you waiting for? Put on that professional smile, take time to speak, take time to listen and see what possibilities can happen!
