Event Recap: Are You Working with the Right People?

Members, non-members, even out-of-towners gathered at The Lakewood Tuesday morning for our monthly event.  The airy and clean loft space in the trendy West Loop was furnished with new pieces from AFR Furniture Rental including some very fashion forward green velvet chairs and marble coffee tables.  Beautiful floral in yellows and greens were scattered throughout courtesy of Kehoe Designs. On a very grey and rainy morning it was a breath of fresh air.


Paramount Events greeted everyone with a healthy make your own yogurt parfait and quinoa bowl as well as a variety of colorful vegetable centric juices.  Halls Rental provided all china and catering equipment and BBJ Linen provided new linen!  Everyone mingled and woke up with a cup (or two) of coffee before the presentation began.  Our speaker, Michelle Loretta of Sage Wedding Pros, gave us all a lesson on The People Plan – a toolkit with tips for hiring the right people, with a focus on retaining and growing your team.  She was so engaging and even for those that do not own their own businesses, it is always great to think about these things when working with colleagues.  There was also a heavy focus on company culture which is so important for any business and associate.  Pictures of the event were snapped by Elizabeth Nord Photography.  It is always a great kick off to the day to begin with positive networking and education!
