Audience Response Systems

Response Card Systems

I have worked with Arthur Hayes and Michael Floyd of Response Card Systems on several meeting projects. Meetings which feature an interactive element are much more memorable and enjoyable, and the feedback helps you to determine the event’s ROI – a valuable tool for follow-up after the event and when planning your next meeting.

Response Card Systems can make any live meeting INTERACTIVE by adding questions right into your existing Power Point presentation. They supply your audience with small, credit card size keypads so that they may INSTANTLY respond to you. Results appear IMMEDIATELY in your PowerPoint presentation and all of the data is exported to Word or Excel for your records.

BNI: Business Networking International

Networking Partner BNIHate the artificial, superficial feel of most networking opportunities? So did I. I avoided networking for years, until I found BNI. BNI is what networking should be – focused on a Giver’s Gain philosophy, which is all about building great relationships rather than simply passing out business cards to near-strangers. It works, period. (And, by the way, it’s actually fun!)

BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world. They offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.

Use the Find a Chapter feature and contact a local BNI Director to see for yourself why BNI has brought businesses together all across the globe for over 24 Years!

I am happy to refer my BNI partners; if you need assistance locating any type of business, feel free to contact us for a personal referral.

Rebecca was an integral part of helping me develop my business from day one. When I asked her to help me develop the logo for my company, I did not expect her to spend so much time inquiring about my vision and what I wanted. Due to that stellar effort, Rebecca almost nailed down that vision on the very first try with just a few minor tweaks needed thereafter. I literally feel as if Rebecca has been one of the main reasons for the success of my business, as if she were invested in it. She acts as if she is, not only in the beginning stages of her work but whenever I have needed her help anytime thereafter.
