Monthly Marketing Update
- March 2017

We are expecting a huge turnout at our sponsor breakfast this Thursday at Providence St. Vincent. Thank you to the 100+ that RSVPd, we are really happy we increased our food and beverage counts! The breakfast details are below.

New this month, we have added a new section to the newsletter “On the Move”. This section will be able to highlight the transitions when someone moves from one company to another. We work hard to build relationships among each other, and it will be great to better stay in touch when a move to a different company or position occurs.

Last but definitely not least- the early bird 10% discount for the 2018 Portland/Vancouver edition ends on March 15th. Let us know if there is someone you feel we should connect with. The ad copy and invoicing does not need to occur until fall, we are simply making sure you get the best possible placement and a 10% discount in appreciation for your early ad reservation.

Nuggets of Knowledge

“When things are not adding up in your life-start subtracting!“ ~Anonymous

As our company has grown and we have added more and more opportunities, sometimes it feels like I am spinning out of control and into space. I have been reevaluating my interactions to focus more on quality rather than quantity, because it seemed something had shifted. I want to feel productive, but purposeful. Lately, our team has focused on “doing less - better”. I encourage you to ask yourself with each activity... What value does this bring and to be mindful in your execution? -Amy
