What is The Referrals Group?

We create groups of like-minded, talented local business professionals with a common goal and direction. The Referrals Group isn’t a one size fits all program. Our goal is to attract and retain talented local business professionals and allow them to grow their network, business and support systems together.

What We Do

The Referrals Group creates a customized plan for each group because every group has different needs at different times. Every business owner, company and organization in the world has their own strategic plan for increasing their network.

How We Do It

We have structure, but not too much structure. Each group determines the characteristics of their members, along with the frequency of their meetings. Our meetings are one hour. Why? Our goal is to be efficient, effective, and dynamic.

What Is Involved

Because every group is at a different place in their life and business, we provide a repeatable structure and plan that fits their needs. You don’t out grow The Referrals Group. You and your members grow with it. Really…we simply get down to business.

Before you apply, you may want to visit a group or even two. We encourage it so you have the ability to meet the group members, they have a chance to meet you and learn about your business. When you are ready, we are ready to help grow your network!
