Sure, we all love to get together and socialize over a frothy pint, but the British American Business Council of Georgia is more than just a social group. It’s a great way to meet others and find ways to collaborate our businesses – it’s networking at its best! A great recent example is how Robbie Maples with Cunningham Lindsey and Melinda Schmiedeknecht with Resonate Marketing were able to collaborate and educate a group of over 100 people at a recent educational seminar.
A brief overview of each company is as follows:
- Ø Cunningham Lindsey is the largest privately-held loss adjusting company globally having a history that dates back over 125 years of industry service. The Group’s global network comprises some 7,000 staff members with representatives in over 70 countries around the world.
- Cunningham Lindsey offers highly experienced loss adjusters and
associated technical staff to provide a focused claim service across a range of specialist disciplines and business sectors. They have proven expertise for handling major losses the world over, particularly where complex technical issues predominate.
- Ø Resonate Marketing assists small business professionals in creating and implementing digital marketing plans. Resonate Marketing specializes in creating social business strategies that integrate with traditional marketing campaigns and educating business professionals on the most efficient methods for leveraging the power of social media.
Robbie sits on the Board of the Southern Loss Association (SLA), which is supported by Cunningham Lindsey. SLA is an insurance industry non-profit organization with the mission “to serve as a forum and medium for the discussion, study and consideration of loss adjustment problems, coverage questions, policy forms, laws and statutes common to all insurance companies.”
Melinda graciously accepted Robbie’s invitation as a guest speaker at the SLA’s 24th Annual Educational Seminar to talk about the do’s and do not’s in Social Media and was able to seamlessly tie it into the world of Insurance. To quote Mr. Maples, “…she was great! With an ever-changing business environment that seemingly revolves around social media trends, we must embrace how to responsibly use social media as a tool. I can’t think of anyone more qualified to help teach these concepts – and in a fun, entertaining, and easy to understand presentation! Thanks Mel!”
As you gather around the next Breakfast Briefing or unwind at the next Pub Night after a long day at the office, be sure to take the time to get to know your fellow networkers. You may be able to find a way to help each other with your own expertise!
