Twice a year, the Relationship Summit gives members of the Executive Pools program a chance to take a break from their fast-paced lives and devote two days to building real relationships while collectively finding answers to entrepreneurial questions. As former attendee, Brad Jensen of Griffin Hill, describes, “Summit creates an environment for me to better understand the needs of other business leaders in our community. Now I am actively looking for opportunities to connect them with solutions for those needs. It's amazing how the "grow" part of the equation naturally takes care of itself.”
Having a network creates leverage that is valuable for both a start-up as well as a developed business. Former attendee of the summit, Adam from Outbox Systems, comments on the opportunities created by participating in a corporate networking event. "Corporate Alliance is a sizable investment for a start-up. After my first summit, I could already see how it was going to pay-off in both new business opportunities and in valuable ideas/insights from other successful business leaders.”
In addition to premium accommodations and fine dining, the summit features unique networking strategies including the Roundtable Discussion, Team Connections and Corporate Alliance’s signature Powerdrills. Activities of this week’s summit are specially designed using the 9 Keys of Relationship Building.
Activities planned for this week include Learn, Serve, Grow, to discuss business challenges and collectively brainstorm a solution. City Census is a “name that business leader” competition where summit members must match provided personal and professional information to the correct colleague. During the Roundtable Discussion business leaders apply specific theories and methods to their own professional practice. The Critical Questions segment gives individuals the full attention of a group of executive leaders to receive feedback on a professional dilemma. Physical competitions are incorporated into the Team Connect activity, which promotes team building in an outdoor setting. Finally, the Summit Auction takes place at the final dinner, allowing each table to compete for prizes using their relationship bucks earned at the event.
This week’s event is made possible through the sponsorship of the well-known names, Humana, Sharp, San Diego County Credit Union, San Diego Padres, My Office, bkm OfficeWorks, Molding Box, and Hughes Marino.
