What is a typical Business Alliance meeting like?

A typical Business Alliance meeting is an hour and a half in length. The first portion is spent networking with other participants and practicing your “.30 second commercial.” Several participants will then be given 10 minutes to present to the group for purposes of professional development as well as educating your peers on your business, what services you market, and your target audience. Time is then allotted to exchange leads and discuss closed business. Food and beverages are provided at every meeting .
