The Share Group provides a great forum to share and solve common problems with a group of very talented people who have a common goal of being students of our industry. Being part of the Share Group has provided me access to a network of talented people who are also seeking solutions to industry problems. Access to talented associates, continuous industry news and information, and the ability to learn from others makes this a tangible positive ROI. In addition to quality discussions at the meetings, I have more than once called the other team members to seek their thoughts on advise on a variety of issues. To be successful in our rapidly changing industry, one must be willing to share and learn from others to address the complex issues we are all facing. The Share Group fits this need. MBC provides a great forum for continuous learning to address the issues and opportunities that I face every day.

There is tremendous value in participating in the MBC Consulting Share Group: from new viewpoints on industry topics to a wide variety of creative solutions to business challenges. MBC has created an atmosphere where idea sharing is encouraged and structured in a very productive manner. I recommend this Share Group for any company that is seeking to successfully navigate the evolving consumer and customer environment.

I have attended Mike’s Share Groups for the past two years and I have found it a valuable way to stay informed of the latest industry and customer information and trends. The diversity of the group and the facilitation provided by Mike allow for an open a free flowing exchange of ideas and possible directions the member firms can take to compete and win in the marketplace. It also provides an additional networking opportunity that pays dividends for those who choose to use each other as resources for help and information in between the actual Share Group sessions. I have found Mike’s group to be both professionally and personally valuable.

I find good value in both my time and money in participating in the MBC Share Groups. The meetings are a good format to exchange best practice ideas and share industry trends and benchmarking. Mike Brouillard is also a well versed and knowledgeable CPG facilitator. He is well rounded and understands all facets of the business. Since we meet twice per year, I also find value in all the industry updates and tidbits that Mike shares frequently between meetings.

Over the past 2 years, I have been a part of an outstanding marketing insights share group that meets twice a year. Our organization has participated in this share group for five years. I cannot tell you how much I have learned and the relationships that I have secured because of this group. It is a great way to understand what other similar organizations are doing with regard to marketing initiatives.

I would highly recommend an MBC Share Group to anyone who wishes to develop best practices, gain a better understanding of the retail environment or stay ahead of the professional curve.
