EDUCATION SYP members act as a support group for others. We bounce ideas off each other, help solve any obstacles you encounter, and we bring in outside experts in their field to address topics of interest and share their stories.
NETWORKING Learn ways to network to customers that produces results that are measurable, quantifiable, predictable, and more importantly, profitable. As a group, we will examine the challenge of effective marketing from different angles and develop strategies that may work collaboratively or individually.
