Highlights from last week...
From The Book of Matthew
Highlights from last week included the 2010 Frank G. Berlin, Sr. Small Business Awards Luncheon at The Ritz-Carlton and the first seminar in this year’s TechFast Breakfast Summer Series at the Sarasota Polytechnical High School.
The awards luncheon was well attended and featured a veritable who’s who of local businesses. I’d like to extend my sincere congratulations to all the finalists and winners. I hope one day Milestone Marketing Associates will earn such an honor.
The TechFast Breakfast series is off to a good start. The attendance appeared close to 50 people and the speakers covered a range of tech-related topics including social media, accounting software, and trademark registration.
As one of the corporate sponsors, Milestone exhibited with our first tabletop display. Spencer Fleury, our copywriter, and I had a number of productive conversations and garnered a couple of decent leads from the event. Check out the banner we used which was one component of our overall event marketing strategy:
In other news, I attended a productive STF board meeting where we agreed to move forward with a new Monthly Networking Lunch every third Tuesday at the Polo Grill and Bar for STF and TBTF members and their guests. The first one is scheduled for July 20th.
We also agreed to move forward with a joint STF-TBTF kickoff event at Gold Coast Eagle Distributing. We’re looking at a couple of dates in August. Stay tuned for more details.
Until next week,
Matthew Anderson, President
