Travel is a crucial part of the Chicago Solutions experience. We send our people on learning trips throughout the year, and even cruises like the one we just went on in Newport Beach.
Top individuals were personally picked by Matt, Chicago Solutions’ Director of Operations, to represent our firm at this exclusive event. Josh, David, Brittany, and Meg headed out west where they spent a day cruising the beautiful California shoreline. This event also featured keynote speakers and time to network with colleagues from across the country.
While the chance to hear from experts in our field was instructive, this trio found connecting with like-minded peers really made the trip worthwhile. In our modern digital world, having a large network is crucial to success for many reasons, including:
• Identifying Our Personal Strengths: One of the tips we teach our team members about networking is to create a short (30-45 seconds) intro that showcases our skills, values, and mind-set. It’s a useful exercise that makes us effective when meeting others, and it increases our self-confidence as well.
• Broadening Our Horizons: It’s refreshing to learn best practices from other markets because it spurs creativity in the way we approach campaigns on our home turf. Also, when we hear about the levels of success that others have reached in our industry, we set even bigger goals for ourselves.
Congratulations again to Josh, David, Brittany, and Meg for earning the right to spend a day on the ocean with some of the top names in our field. To see pictures of the posh affair, check out our Chicago Solutions Newswire feed.
