Testimonials

I highly recommend becoming a member of Business & Professional Exchange. BPE assisted me in learning how to develop a 30-second sales pitch that was adaptable to any situation. I learned about the importance of one’s appearance, smile, attitude, and how to take those with me into any networking opportunity. BPE helped me to sharpen skills through my involvement in committees and leadership roles, and gave me the skills and confidence I needed to obtain those important interviews and eventually a new career.Picture of Phil ThompsonPhil ThompsonRegional Transportation Manager, Con-Way Freight
Business & Professional Exchange provided me with the opportunity to get to know an amazing pool of professional talent. From practicing my 30 second speech in a large group, to smaller group and one-on-one meetings, the support and ideas flowed and kept me focused. The speakers were full of useful job hunting information as well as educational information on the emotional ups and downs associated with job loss. I was inspired, educated and encouraged to keep on track.Picture of Sherry GilbertSherry Gilbert Engineering Project Manager, Belcan for Rolls Royce
