People on average buy people! This is particularly relevant in the service industry. Naturally the product or service offered must fulfil a need and desire. During our lives we will have a variety of needs making business groups relevant at all levels for exploring each other’s necessities.
There are many very good networking groups, but Virginia’s aim is to bring small groups together to explore beyond the exchange of business cards. Believing that, regardless of product, most business have similar dilemmas when seeking and servicing customers an exchange of tips in a respected and safe environment will yield positive results
Education has reached extraordinary heights with many more young people continuing to University. This is to be applauded especially as those graduating are doing so with excellent degrees. However, sometimes this comes at a personal cost due to competitive attitudes that are not always respectful and kind.
Each one of us is unique. Of all the millions of people in the world no fingerprint or voice is the same. It follows that it is impossible for any of us to have the same strengths. It is vital that the young accept their differences learning about strengths and weaknesses but above all learning respect for each other’s productivity. The value of being a good mixer and believing in positivity are skills Virginia brings to the table.
