Relationships are one of the most important and valuable aspects of life. We all know they require work, but for me the benefits of strong personal and business relationships is beyond measure.
My father owned a small business in the manufacturing sector and he always emphasized the importance of a quality product first and foremost. He worked hard to gain the trust and respect of his clients. His work ethic and values left a big impression on his young son. However, he encouraged me to pursue a career in medicine as business “had ups and downs but people always need good doctors”. I’m sure no matter what path one takes professionally the importance of business relationships cannot be understated.
As many of you know we had a beautiful day in June to enjoy another successful annual (and uninterrupted by COVID) golf outing. The IWCI Board, and especially the golf committee, worked hard to ensure another successful day where many of us were able to laugh and play together.
I am especially excited about our resumption of the annual seminar August 11th and 12th at the Indianapolis Marriott North. We are excited to have a new venue this year! The schedule will be similar in format to the 2019 event; filled with nuggets of knowledge to better equip our members to continue to navigate successful careers. We offer this seminar to educate, but just as important – it gives us all an opportunity to strengthen important business relationships. Whether you are an attending member or a sponsor helping IWCI bring this seminar back to life – we wish to encourage all to get on our website and register. The schedule is outlined on the website and there will also be opportunities for socializing to include the happy hour on Thursday.
We are also planning luncheons at the Marriott North September 29th and October 27th. The topics will be announced as those lectures are secured.
As always, please notify us if you have a topic you would like us to explore. We hope to see you all in August at the seminar!
