E-Network

About the program

The E Network serves entrepreneurs at all stages of business, and business people within the community, who are looking to refine and master their networking skill sets and cultivate relationships.  The E Network group is led by our Business Development Specialist, Lynn Rybak.

How will you benefit

You will gain incredible support from your group and knowledge from your facilitator/mentor as our very unique program offers training in business development and networking.


During the 2018-2019 program our E Network groups’ total gross revenue received, strictly generated through warm leads from the program, was over $475,000.00! That’s an average of over $15,000 per person which is more than 50 times the cost of the program.  That’s an incredible return on investment, and valuable way to spend your time!


How it works

Meetings take place monthly for 10 months starting in September.  Your E Network Group trainer is specially trained to implement the most effective lessons and hands-on exercises in networking.

What you will talk about

You will practice the skills of effective networking, discuss issues, refine your sales message and exchange leads.  The focus is on building your business and cultivating relationships.
