We are very proud to share with you our new service we offer. Thanks to our large buying power, we have succeeded in negotiating a collective insurance that is able to cover all businesses with 2 or more persons. GR Group Insurance is offered by some of our Select members with the appropriate AMF license.
Great networking group. Provides business growth and an opportunity to meet other like minded business people.

I love GR. This is my second time being a member after a short break away to transition my business.
Our group is high energy, highly motivated entrepreneurs.
I love that I can visit any of the groups any time and I have a profile and promotional space to share all of my services, workshops and specials.

GR is more than a networking group it is an ongoing wealth of knowledge and inspiration. They don’t have limited restrictions as to where I can be and where I can network and how to manage my business. Also, I get to add value to each group that I attend by sharing what I have learned from other groups. I have acquired invaluable knowledge through the 'Tricks of the Trade' and Coach's tip. This alone is worth the membership.

“I look forward to meeting with my own personal team of supporters every week for a morning of motivation and learning. GR has given me a venue to meet, and benefit from creating relationships with, other business owners that I wouldn’t get being in the office all day. The opportunities for growth, both personal and business, are endless!” ”I was so pleased also that my connection with GR had a hand in helping my niece get the perfect summer employment to coincide with her University program!”

The most important thing GR has provided for me is CONNECTIONS and that is the best way to succeed at anything in life! The Carp Connections helped build self-confidence and the Stittsville Solutions have influenced my business in ways never imagined! Thank you to each and everyone one of my connections from GR!

Margaret-Ann I really enjoyed the luncheon you put together at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. A great number turned out, the conversations were good and enjoyed hearing from the gal who introduced us to the benefits of her company that guides people thru therapeutic riding with horses. A surprise to me was one of the regular members introduced me to her guest who in turn ended up calling me last week and booked a trip. He has always wanted to spend an authentic St Paddy’s Day in Dublin, Ireland. So after giving him a few suggestions, I finalized everything and set up his airfare, car rental and accommodation. Off he will go on March 12th for a week to fulfil something on his bucket list. The fact that I would get business from attending that lunch that day never even entered my mind and it reminds me that there is always the person you haven’t met yet!

I am very happy with the decision that I made to join GR. Our group is committed to building our group and connections. We believe that by getting to know each other, we will be better able to refer friends/clients and know that they will be taken care of. What I also like about our group is the sharing of everyone’s ideas and experience to help grow our own individual businesses. Everyone is at a different point in their careers and has many success stories and ideas to share. Our weekly meeting is a much anticipated point in my week.

I joined GR because the platform offers me the most versatile platform for connecting with business minded professionals who can attend to the needs of my clients, friends, and family. I renewed with GR because I have experienced success with it and recognize Margaret-Ann's efforts to support me and my goals within GR.
”I started my journey with GR Business Networking 2 years ago to simply meet like minded professional, however, I had no idea how the network would change my business. Building relationships with passionate entrepreneurs has increased my motivation, my confidence and skill sets. Networking it is something you have to commit to weekly, engage throughout your meeting and make it a point to get to know others in the group. These steps will no doubt grow your business.
In 2016, 58% of my business was directly through the GR network!! GR networking group will introduce you to new opportunities to grow and build your business.”
I have now been a member for 5 years and it is an arm of my business I couldn't live without 60-70% of my clients come from the referral relationships I have built with amazing GR members.

I have been a GR member since last August/2017 and already have procured many great business friendships and relationships. There is a strong sense of community within GR and this permeates from the top down, ongoing education, regular regional functions, community charity events are all apart of a well rounded and balanced organization.
I have found GR to be a valuable investment on both a business and personal level, remembering at the end of the day it's all about the relationships we forge.

Im sold. As I say when I talk with people, I got a contract the first meeting I attended, why wouldn't I explore all that GR has to offer!
