MasterMind Alliance : Join our upcoming program!

Filed under: Leadership Skills,Professional Development,Services — Alec @ 3:30 pm

Starting in September, I will be co-facilitating the Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce MasterMind Alliance groups with my sister-in-law Pinky McPherson, who is also a business consultant that focuses on developing people and talent within organizations. You don’t need to live in the Lowell area to participate, all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please contact Pinky McPherson at 616-446-5076 or
Contact the Lowell Chamber of Commerce at 616-897-9161 or to register.


Who do you turn to when you need to discuss a decision that can impact your business or employees?

Tap into the knowledge and experience of a group of your peers by joining the Lowell Area Chamber MasterMind Alliance. This group of business owners or people in top level business management is committed to listening and lending a fresh perspective to situations you face every day and some you have never encountered until now. All they ask is that you do the same for them in return. This is a chance to help your business, organization, your peers and your community.

September through June, 2013 – 2014

TIME: Choice of Alliance Group
