Tuesday Talk: Cyber Networking

Are your sales up - like Cyber Monday Selling - which grew nearly 20% this year over last according to Adobe Analytics?

 

Or are sales down like the old Black Friday sales school of marketing?

 

Stop leaving 20% Growth on the table and start cashing in on Cyber Selling, without spinning your wheels, without spending a bundle spending of time and money and with a high probability of success?

 

Zoom Cyber Communications Expert, Mike Hayes claims he can teach anybody how to use his Media Insider Secret shortcuts to do just that.

 

Join us at The Chamber for a fun and lively hands-on DEMO and Bootcamp hosted for Chamber Members, by Mike Hayes, a veteran broadcaster of NBC in NY, CNN in LA, KGO Radio in SF, plus many years in TV infomercials.

 

"I can teach ANYBODY to look and sound like a Zoom Cyber Communications Pro in 30 minutes. Looking and sounding good on Zoom video streamlines cyber selling and eliminates wasting time and money on things that don't work anymore." Mike Hayes, "The NetworKing"

 

I'm a Lafayette Chamber Member and Ambassador and I challenge anyone to come and to prove me wrong about turning you into a Zoom Pro Video Super Hero, and to earn 20% or more income in 2019.

 

Jay Lifson, Chamber Executive Director has volunteered to be one of my "Chuck Yeager" Test Pilots by using my Zoom Video Teleprompter System for Chamber Mixer Followup Networking.

Business Person of the Year Dinner/State of the City Address

Thank you for joining us for the 2019 Business Person of the Year! Video of the Mayor’s State of the City Address, which was given at the Chamber’s Business Person of the Year dinner, is now up on the City of Lafayette's YouTube channel here:

Terry RingLafayette’s Business Person of the Year has been selected! The Wizard of Lafayette Terry Ring, Ring Construction is honored.

 

When Toto pulls back the curtain and reveals the Wizard of Oz, we are confused. It is not the person we thought it was. And when we realize who it really is, we are even more impressed by his or her importance. This year we DO pay attention to the man behind the curtain. The guy who without recognition has done so many great things for our community while running a very successful construction company for decades.

 

Terry Ring is not only an amazing community volunteer, he is an IRON MAN. The Iron Man team is the group of volunteers behind the curtains at the annual Art & Wine Festival, doing whatever is needed for the event to be successful. Terry has been helping with so many events over the years with the Lafayette Rotary Club (Terry is the incoming President for 2019) and the Chamber of Commerce where you can find Terry at the starting line of the Lafayette Res Run for Education instructing the runners on proper running etiquette. Terry and his crew ultimately built the Rotary Stage at the Reservoir and the new memorial honoring our local fallen sons and daughters who lived in Contra Costa. The new memorial sits out front of the Lafayette Veterans Memorial Center.

 

Help us celebrate Terry’s contributions by joining us for a dinner in his honor. The Business Person of the Year dinner will be held at the Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa on Friday, February 1, 2019 . In addition to toasting and roasting Terry, we will have Mayor Cam Burks give his first “State of the City” address. Reservations are required.

Speaker: Christina Alba, Lead Chiropractor of Rivulet Chiropractic, and the 2019 Lafayette Chamber Board President

 

About Christina:

After a career as a brand marketing consultant in San Francisco and New York City, Dr. Christina Alba wondered what more there could be to this life. So she decided to return to school to become a chiropractor. Why? Having benefitted from chiropractic care herself, her passion and goal is to give the gift of health and vitality to others, especially those who spend their time in the service of others. She has done humanitarian work in the Dominican Republic and in Mumbai, India. She looks forward to traveling next to Southeast Asia with her husband and fellow chiropractor, Dr. Brian Flannery. While she's not adjusting people and serving as this year's Chamber of Commerce Board President, she spends time embarrassing her three teenagers: the nerd boy, Gabe; Quin, the punk rocker; and Reeve, the loud artist.

Tuesday, March 19, 2019City of Lafayette

The Future of our Downtown Community Workshop

In February, the Lafayette City Council approved three strategic goals and five strategic objectives for 2019. One of the strategic objectives is to develop a strategy to expand City support of local businesses and commerce & to increase the vibrancy of downtown Lafayette. Mayor Burks and Councilmember Candell are assigned to work on this objective and their goal is to submit an action plan to the full City Council by the end of April. The action plan or road map will assist the Council in establishing the City’s work plans for the coming year(s).

 

A public meeting on March 19 will focus on receiving input from property owners, business owners and operators. This presents a welcome opportunity to share your thoughts on how the city can help you and your business to stay relevant in this changing retail climate. We invite you to join us in this discussion.
