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 GPG 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.

I have found the CEO Share Group to be extremely beneficial to our business. We cover topics selected by the group members which has provided me with far more insight and contemporary knowledge than I was able to glean from our Company’s former Advisory Board. Each member of the group goes out of their way to help each other, and Mike Brouillard’s coordination and leadership has ensured that we stay focused on matters of strategic and tactical importance.

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.

I have attended Mike’s Sales & Marketing Share Group 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
