BE Memorable: Relationships are Key to Building Business

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”      Maya Angelou's famous quote resurfaced for me this week as our team finalizes the remaining details and begins packing in preparation for our upcoming forum in Savannah, Georgia.

The Proof is in the Data

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly six months of hard nosed work culminates in a three-day whirlwind. But when a leading CIO and former military leader tells me Midmarket CIO Forum effectively gives him back 18 days a year, I know our team's doing something right. A few years ago, Hilary heard RC [...]

What Hurricane Irma Taught Me

Nearly two weeks after Hurricane Irma passed, the sunsets in the Florida Keys are still second to none. The "Old Salts" of the Florida Keys rarely bat an eye each hurricane season as storms start swirling off the coast of Africa like fastballs headed for the Caribbean.

Staying the Course

For more months than I care to recall, the catamaran on which I live in South Florida has been out of the water for some maintenance and repairs. A slight miscalculation out sailing last year carried one of her precious hulls across a jagged jetty and ripped a gaping hole in her bottom side. Another [...]
