2017 Quarterly Power Lunch Series

Join us for our 2017 Quarterly Power Lunch Series! Our Power Lunches are currently held at Harry & Izzy’s 4050 E 82nd St in Indianapolis.

Our 2017 Quarterly Power Lunch Series will provide a group of interesting, dynamic, and diverse speakers. By attending a Power Lunch you will have the opportunity to learn from our community leaders and network with other attendees in an intimate setting. Space is limited at each event to ensure attendees have adequate time to ask questions to our speaker after the presentation. There will also be time to introduce yourself to the group and network with NOWIB members and guests at the Power Lunch.

Due to limited space, RSVPs are required for our Power Lunches.

Details about our currently scheduled Quarterly Power Lunches are included below and on our Events Page.

Telling Your Story to Gain Customer Loyalty
People buy from people they connect with and feel a great trust in their relationship. How do you share YOUR story to build a connection that makes you an expert? Telling Your Story to Gain Customer Loyalty is a skill that with preparation and practice will enable you to share with your prospects and clients to strengthen your relationships. Everyone has a story that has shaped who they are and how they conduct business, however we often do not realize the importance in others hearing about the journey and how it can impact your business.
