If you’re a regular reader of the Blue Gurus blog…THANK YOU! We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate you taking the time to read, comment and share our blogs with friends and colleagues.
We work very hard to keep the focus of our blog on HELPING. That is who we are. It’s in our DNA. It’s built into our culture. That will never change.
It’s in that spirit that we will, from time to time, “put our pens down” and give our clients an opportunity to share their experiences. With that in mind, we recently completed LinkedIn training sessions with two young, energetic, growing companies in Kansas City: Alterra Bank
and Optima Worldwide
These companies are made up of great people that “get it” and who are clearly passionate about making a real difference in the lives of their customers. Personally, I can’t be around these types of people enough (remember I have an aversion to people that suck
) and these training sessions were invigorating, inspiring, and furthered my optimism of the small business community in Kansas City.
Comments like the ones below get us out of bed each morning and motivate us to train every business in Kansas City on how to effectively use LinkedIn to grow their business and their brand.
Ok, time to put my pen down…
Kent Brown, Chief Lending Officer, Alterra Bank (in an email to Chief Strategy Officer at Alterra, Jeff Chambers)
“Yes, me, the low tech guy, is very excited about our initiative for LinkedIn. I went through the hour pre-training today and was actually almost blown away by what LinkedIn can eventually do with, and for, us.
Bottom line, this is money definitely well spent. We need to all learn how to use it properly.
Jeff, thanks for setting this up! :) Except the guy is listed as a “Jayhawk Fanatic” on his LinkedIn page.”
“Thought I’d share this with you guys. I mentioned in my updated profile that I’m very competitive at everything I do, including poker.
Over lunch today someone mentioned he read that in my profile and invited me to join a monthly poker game with a bunch of bankers, private equity guys, attorneys, etc. – could turn into some awesome (albeit possibly very expensive) networking. I’ve only had the poker reference up there for about 4 days!”
