Approximately 40 Chamber Members attended the February 4 Chamber 411 at the City of Winter Garden Commission Chambers. At this session, attendees learned all about "Building Better Business Relationships with the West Orange Chamber of Commerce." The discussion dove into the science of networking, as members discovered ways to make the most of Chamber events and other opportunities to build their business. They learned the benefits of sharing leads and referrals, and how establishing relationships, even if they may not show immediate returns, can pay off down the road. Networking is often approached with a "What's in it for me?" outlook, but taking a "How can I help?" approach instead can be far more successful.
Attendees also learned about the Chamber's Chief Facilitator of Opportunity (CFO) program, and examples of how taking a few simple steps can bring huge dividends for their business. The discussion wrapped up with a hands-on activity showing positive examples of networking, and how to open lines of communication with other members at Chamber events.
