It’s a challenge while an honor to have the opportunity to chair the Brazilian Business Group, an organization with solid values which for many years I am part, first as an associate, later as member of the Board and fully identify myself. This group looks for strategic partners to establish mutually beneficial relationships that provide information, support and referrals. I am deeply engaged to cross promotion within our organizations.
I receive this mission with humility and with a commitment to always do the best for the individual and professional growth of our members providing engagement, interaction and business opportunities. Networking is more about farming connections with new contacts than hunting for them. People want to do business with people they know and trust. It’s about cultivating those relationships.
My commitment is to work together with the Board of Directors who are the pillars of our organization and with the efforts of our volunteers; improve existing programs, strengthening partnerships with governmental and private entities willing to bring benefits to our members. Our network includes like-minded companies focused on developing mutually beneficial relationships that lead to more business.
My work proposal is to expand our referral program called “Business Roundtable” leveraging the interaction among members from various segments to increase knowledge and business opportunities. We believe in the continuous improvement of personal and professional skills. BBG provides a variety of opportunities to support lifelong learning. We partner with several organizations that share our values. Working together, we help each other grow.
Provide points of activity and contacts in other continents as Asia and Europe with the creation of the BBG – Asia located in Tokyo and the BBG – Europe with offices in Switzerland and Serbia. We encourage the participation of Brazilian and American companies, providing exposure and promotion of members at various events such as our Business Network Luncheon, Focus Brazil – Business panel, BBG Afterhours, Membership Breakfast, Brazil-Florida Summit, Seminars and Workshops to name a few. Through weekly meetings and exclusive resources, the BBG helps you build a strong network that fuels professional growth.
I’m confident that with the collaboration of our members, committed Board of Directors, and dedicated volunteers; the BBG will grow its membership this year engaging our members to fully take advantage of our programs and the tools of interaction that we offer.
