Civic engagement: The ultimate multitasking business tool
As a final act of my chairmanship, I wrote a byline for the Miami Herald about the value of civic engagement and how multitaskers can use this tool for business growth. Those who engage in civic activity not only make our community a better place to live, work and play, but they also reap incredible business benefits.
Chairing the chamber while leading rbb Communications brought many multitasking benefits to me, my firm and its clients. I built brand, learned best practices, made relationships that led to new clients, new employees, new partners and new friends. I believe that chamber membership is as measurable as a pay per click ad campaign – but it is a lot more fun and the impact lasts longer.
Turning over the Chamber leadership reins to the incredible president of FIU, Dr. Mark Rosenberg, I encourage you to evaluate your civic engagement and ask if you can do more. Mark has a tremendous vision for the upcoming year, and with the business community’s support, we will all continue to make Miami the Entrepreneurial Capital of the World.
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard this past Chamber year. And though my year as Chair is complete, I will continue to share insights and report on key entrepreneurial news on this blog, so please enjoy and keep reading.
