Every time we meet someone new we expand both personally and professionally. New relationships allow us to grow — often in ways we weren't anticipating. As certain relationships evolve, they have a direct impact on our success.
As Porter Gale said, “Your network is your net worth.” Do not underestimate the power of relationships, especially those that are built in a genuine, impactful manner.
My greatest gift is connecting the right people at the right time. I am a natural networker and storyteller, which has allowed me to build a team that continues to drive success — my success, their success, and the success of those we work with. I am intrigued and inspired by others’ stories. Everyone has a unique story, and to me, I see the true value of these stories.
There are lessons to be learned from those you meet, which may influence and impact in ways you never expected. As John Maxwell said, “Understanding people certainly impacts your ability to communicate with others” — and that resonates with me.
Some say, “I never met a person I didn’t know.” I think that not only refers to the vast and deep network I’ve developed over time, traversing the globe across multiple industries, but also refers to the instant rapport I have with most people. This is a powerful and deep gift that I am grateful for — both in terms of my professional and personal life.
When it comes to business, having an extensive and deep network of experts means quick access to reliable non-publicly available information to help make better choices in rapidly evolving markets. These experts include:
C-suite and high profile executives within large corporations
Founders and key employees across the startup ecosystem
Investors - venture capital, private equity, angels
Top talent and emerging creators in music, TV, film, and sports
Thought leaders and influencers
My team is a diverse group of investors, operators, advisors, academics, and other thought leaders. We have spent years building relationships based on integrity and mutual respect and that give us unique access to firsthand intelligence and deal flow. That level of trust, access, and understanding is invaluable.
We vet and curate only the people, technologies, ideas, and startups that are most relevant to your needs. We appreciate the value of targeted networking and that’s where we can help.
Curated Conversations are structured to meet your needs. The most common formats are:
Hosted or direct one to one calls and meetings
Thematic roundtables of typically no more than 12 people over a delicious meal or online
Well researched and produced invitation only events typically ranging from 100 - 1000 attendees online or in person e.g. Startup Day, Vendor Day, Partner Day, AI Day, Gig Economy Day, etc.
Informal networking events oftentimes piggybacking off major events
