Welcome New President Mayumi Nakamura

Welcome New President Mayum...
Mayumi Nakamura of Pacific Software Publishing addressed Seattle Execs on July 8 for the first time as President of the Association.

“Pay It Forward” is Mayumi's motto for her term.

Here are some excerpts from her speech -

"Over the past 12 years, I have met so many people in this organization who have helped us get our company where it is today. Whether it’s a connection with another person, a product or service, or just a piece of good advice, many of you have set us on a track for success."

"Opportunities have been handed to me throughout my life, and that have brought me to this podium today. I would be nothing without people who cared to see me succeed; people who invested time and resources in me."

"That’s why it is my mission to 'pay it forward' and give opportunities to others. And that is the message I want to encourage for all of you today."

"It is vital to the success of our economy and this organization that our partnerships are mutual and we help each other grow with advice, with leads, with friendship, with mentorship, and with our business. So during my term as president, I ask you all to do just that."

"Let’s give opportunities to our fellow members in hopes that they will one day be able to reciprocate."

Leads Coaching Day

Leads Day Table Discussion Leads Day Table Discussion
Kudos to John Pletsch of Electric Pen and the Leads Committee for another great Leads Day program at yesterday's meeting.

The focus of Leads Day was "Leads Coaching". Each table had a "coach" that acted as a mentor to keep conversations going, encourage group discussion and provided coaching.

The objective of Leads Coaching Day was to share tips, tricks and ideas for giving leads and engaging in mutual business.

We received lots of great feedback from the coaches and participants.

Here are some leads sharing recommendations :

"Visit a Seattle Exec member at their place of business – it is the best way to learn and get educated about them so they would be able to promote their business in the future."

“We need to continue to educate ourselves about what each company does and my table felt that we should have random seating every meeting so that people are forced to sit with different Exec members every week."

“Give your office staff copies of the directory and remind them to use the services within.”

“Follow-up – check in with the person you gave the lead to – touch base.”

“Read the newsletter---“coat tail leads” they can react on---not specifically for them but they can do business with the person.”

“Thank members for the opportunity to submit a bid---don’t avoid then because you didn’t accept the bid.”

John Pletsch also announced that our lead reporting has dramatically increased in 2014. Hopefully after yesterday meeting, we can all stay on track at recording our leads and see another increase.
