TEN Happy-Hour - Oct 28th, 08 - Thank you!

Dear all,

We would like to thank you all for making Top Executives Happy-Hour on Oct 28th another big hit. Please see photos of our events Oct 09th, 08 & Oct 28th, 08. We had 45 people in our 1st event and 60 professionals in our 2nd one. The interesting part is that only 15 people attended the 1st event as well. And there are a lot of people interested in joining us in November. May you wish to donate a product or service for raffle prize, like the way Andrea, Mentha and we did, please let us know in advance. We expect to reach 100 people by then. Details will come soon.

Please forward this email to your friends and start inviting them since now. In this regard, we would like to thank Andrea, Giselle, Sigrid, Tamara, Luca & Carl for their networking spirit of always promoting this modest initiative among their peers. We sincerely hope that bringing, at least, 2-3 friends along is understood as a very basic value added attitude. As a result, many more business opportunities will come after all of us. Kindly share your success stories, if any....

In order to make our life much easier for future invitations and reminders, please join TEN - Top Executives Net (Business) besides your preferable online social network and register at TEN Rio de Janeiro group. Those who do so within a week, will get 1-year free membership. Alternatively, connect to us on complementary platforms namely TEN Group on LinkedIN, ASW (Social) and Internations (Ex-pats). In order to avoid overloading your inbox, we will only promote our happy-hours inside these 4 social networks from now on. Kindly always confirm your presence online. It´s just a simple click which helps a lot when preparing the presence list.

Some people asked us about the nature of our business networks management using social networks activities. They are summarized in this slidecasting & related video-blog (please register). May you wish to know more, please check the links on this email signature.

For those who are curious about the motivation behind these happy-hours, we are pleased to inform 10 quick points:
  1. Leading by serving is a nice way to introduce yourself before others. Remember that everybody has his/her own network.
  2. We made new contacts, business partners and friends like everybody else.
  3. We created and documented a memorable experience with all participants
  4. We started a solid and long lasting relationship with quality people who were dormant inside existing social networks
  5. We idetified professionals who are willing to interact in both real & virtual worlds
  6. We attended a discreet call for business networks manager and motivator, CNO - Chief Networking Officer - Wikipedia
  7. We clearly demonstrated that social networks are very helpful tools in other to manage corporate networks
  8. We showed case the applicability of our methodology to individuals, entrepreneurs and even large corporations
  9. We proved to executives and organizations that relationships management is highly appreciated
  10. We have tangible grounds to consider launching TEN CLUB in partnership with 3 major corporations in Brazil soon.

As a result, we build enough trust to consider doing business together with many people together in a near future. TEN is just a start-up. If it works for us, imagine for those companies that are well established and funded?

We do not come for the taking but we add meaningful value instead. The beauty of this work is that is very simple, it can be done by anyone at anytime, it gives practical and tangible results in the short run to all network members. The more one gives, we better is for everyone. The only detail is that can not be done alone. The sum of all parts is much bigger than the whole. We strongly believe that a new global and economic order passes through business networks management.

Please contact us may you wish to contribute with new formats of top executives experiences: adventurous tourism, presentations, parties, breakfast, lunch, dinners, wine tasting, golfing, barbecue, gourmet etc..... We are always looking for supporters and good ideas in order to create a diversified calendar of events.

Best regards,

Octavio Pitaluga
