I am a financial analyst trying to transition into life coaching. I am part of Toastmasters, which has helped me to practice leadership and communication. However, when I attended a BACN conference, I immediately went to the next level because I was exposed to experienced consultants with high-level content from world-class speakers. It didn’t hurt that they actually served my favorite breakfast food…bacon! After my first meeting, now I’m a member for life. I wanted to earn more money, and now I’m bringing home the BACN!
The Mindset of BACN
I really appreciate the mindset of BACN. It is one of openness, inclusiveness and being of service to each other. At the events we are provided with tons of useful information and a structure to connect. It gives the opportunity to broaden both our network and our horizon.
One of the Most Interesting Professional Groups
BACN is one of the most interesting professional groups I participate in, full of bright people doing interesting work. It has enriched my knowledge and skills enormously.
A Unique Gathering
Some attempts were made to describe what makes BACN such a unique gathering. I can think of at least three:
- A consortium of other consultant peers in a non-competitive environment
- A wholesome willingness to share information with others
- Amazing, non-traditional programs that address both the intellect and the emotions
- Safety and peer-to-peer relationships
- Generosity of spirit
- Touching our hearts as well as our heads
A Wonderful Community
BACN is a wonderful community–for learning, for growing, and for becoming a more successful entrepreneur.
I really enjoyed my first BACN meeting. To find a group of motivated business owners and entrepreneurs is refreshing. I felt supported and recognized, and had my mind opened to new possibilities.
Learning, Family, Networking
Love the combination of learning, family, and networking. A fantastic way to build your network.
Transforms How I Help My Clients
I always learn about myself and take away knowledge that transforms how I help my clients.
Felt good connection with group–kindred spirits. 🙂
A Nourishing Environment
A nourishing environment with supportive colleagues and great, practical information at every meeting.
Outstanding and Diverse
Outstanding and diverse group of professionals. Great people to meet and get to know.
A super-fun Life Hack
The whole meeting is a super-fun Life Hack.
I couldn’t take notes fast enough
Joe Diliberto is engaging and gives important information about selling at every opportunity. I couldn’t take notes fast enough!
I had originally said I appreciated BACN because of the sense of groundedness in the group. I just realized that this groundedness results from the collective success orientation both collectively and individually.
A warm and diverse group of consultants
BACN is an incredibly warm and diverse group of consultants. It’s a wonderful place to connect with strategic partners, learn how to support your business, and make professional connections.
Great topic, well-presented. Jennifer Bourn is a top-notch speaker.
Get to the Next Level
Every time I’m here I gain more great information to make use of in my business—to help me go to the next level with less effort!
Tips for Business
I get tips for my business every time I come!
I look forward to attending again
This was my first BACN meeting and I loved it. I’m just starting out in the consulting world following 3 decades as a teacher, senior executive, and CEO. I consider engaging with other consultants now to be really beneficial. I don’t know what I don’t know about how to run my business. I appreciate that there’s a process used at this meeting and look forward to attending again.
Outstanding Speaker at BACN Today!
Congrats on a great meeting this morning.
Lee Caraher provided both an amazing source of inspiration and clear, actionable recommendations. These two qualities –action and inspiration — aren’t often found together.
A home run!
