P2P

Mission Statement:

The purpose of the group is to establish a structured meeting time and place for a select group of highly qualified business professionals who want to work together for the sole purpose of helping each other succeed in business through the exchange of qualified business referrals and current marketplace information. 

Qualifications:

Businesses and their representatives must be GFMCC members and demonstrate a high standard of quality, ethics, professionalism and reliability in regard to their products and/or services. 

Meeting Day/Time/Location:

DATES: 1st & 3rd Wednesdays

TIME:   8:15 AM         

LOCATION: Hilton Garden Inn – Fort Myers 

DATES: 2nd & 4th Thursdays

TIME: 12:00 PM

LOCATION: Shoeless Joe’s Sports Cafe

SUMMARY:

This group is designed to be informative, productive, profitable, and fun.  Active, consistent, and sincere participation by all of its members will make this club a great success.  Structured meetings will assure us of keeping on track and give each of us the most qualified and profitable leads to improve our businesses.

What to expect: Each meeting will begin promptly with introductions of each member telling the group a little about their business and what type of leads would be beneficial to them.  (Not to last more than one minute per person…i.e. Name/Business, Business Location, General Features and Benefits, Cost, Specifics for locating good leads.)  One member will be asked in advance to be the “Highlighted Speaker” during each meeting and will be allowed to address the group with a ten minute presentation about their businesses.  The more we know about our fellow members’ businesses, the better we can assist each other by supplying qualified leads.  Members will then be asked to think of specific leads for fellow members based on this information.  Each meeting will end with open announcements pertaining to current events and developments in the marketplace that may be of interest to the entire group
