What makes Synergy Business Connections a special group?

Have you ever heard of a Troika? If not, you should come to a meeting. It really makes the Synergy Business Connections group so special. Not only do we collaborate as a big group during bi-weekly group meetings, we also get to get to know the individuals in our group through bi-weekly Troikas. Relationships are so important, and our Troikas help us to build our personal connections with people. You can’t do that in a massive group breakfast or in a huge happy hour mixer. We get to learn and teach each other, and by doing so, we make each other that much more successful.

What makes the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce a good chamber to be part of?

The Greater Conejo Valley Chamber is unique in its networking possibilities, its professionalism, its special groups, and its size. It is a 5 star rates Chamber, and it allows you to have a broad reach in the community. Joining is one of the best decisions I have made.

What makes Synergy Business Connections a special group?

I appreciate the smaller size and exclusivity of each member's business in the community, plus the willingness to provide leads and resources, even if businesses don't exactly complement each other directly.

What makes the Conejo Valley special, unique or interesting?

I like to call Thousand Oaks "the biggest little town in the country." Even though its size is well over 100,000 residents, it still has a small town feel. You are liable to see someone you know every time you go out. I also like the fact that it has protected itself from the blight that has ruined so many other communities in Southern California by restricting things such as billboards, building structure and height, paid parking lots, and corner strip malls.

What makes the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce a good chamber to be part of?

I am not exaggerating:  My experience in the last two years with our Chamber has been life-changing.  I've never been a "joiner" and never felt comfortable in groups. I met Jill Lederer, other wonderful Chamber staff and members when Abby Franke and I introduced them in 2012 to the beginnings of Abby's Millstone Baking Co. in Agoura Hills.  Since that time the support in the Conejo community for the bakery has been huge and continues growing daily by word of mouth (literally and figuratively).  My enormously positive business and personal experiences with Chamber members through the bakery led me to buy a second membership for my husband's and my construction forensics expert witness business, XL Services. So now I'm a two-time joiner who speaks in public, has friendships with many great business owners in the Conejo Valley and enjoys living in our area more than ever, in deep and lasting quality-of-life ways. 

I'm pleased to see that our Chamber continues to grow and grow.  I urge every new and existing business in the Conejo Valley and beyond to join us!

What makes Synergy Business Connections a special group?

Synergy offers a unique and very lively "open forum" format that invites every member to contribute to the conversation. In addition to our bi-monthly meetings, members are assigned a "Troika" (meet for coffee) with 2-3 other members between meetings. Members report that the Troika allows them to interact within the group and develop meaningful relationships.
