Business Solutions Syndicate - PoweRHOUR

The Business Solutions Syndicate hosts a PoweRhour for executives, entrepreneurs and business owners within 10 miles of the Greenwich Office Park. The PoweRhour starts promptly at 8:30 am with a facilitated keynote presentation led by a Solutions Leader or special invited business executive.

The power of this fast-paced hour comes from the interactive discussion, concise question and answers to support the goals of all Syndicate Members, Partners and Solution Leaders. By design, the facilitated large group session of the PoweRhour ends promptly at 9:30 am, but members and new guests meet privately afterwards to engage with the Solution Leaders and the keynote facilitator.

Preferred Partners provide related support services as needed and are also available for confidential conversations after each session in the Park Cafe. The facility has a large dining area, private conference room with internet access used for creative thinking and strategic planning for member businesses. Unlike a networking group or business event, the private conversations are focused on specific business development, strategic marketing, communications, finance, operations, bookkeeping, IRS record retention and tax preparation. Five Solution Leaders, with practice areas vital to the growth and success of business owners and entrepreneurs, are available before or after each syndicate session.

There is no charge to attend these PoweRhour sessions through June 28, 2019.

The only requirement is for Solution Leaders, Preferred Partner and Syndicate Members to invite other successful experienced professionals to attend as our guest.

The mission of the Syndicate is to provide immediate support to the invited guest - results, referrals, revenue.

Guests of the Park Cafe may arrive at the event and participate at each session comparable to a member,
