GNOEA has given me the opportunity to build relationships with other business owners, in all different stages and industries. This has given me additional insight into other business practices, successes and struggles. My membership has also exposed me to local and regional industry leaders that I would otherwise have never met.
I’ve been a member of GNOEA since 2014, and it’s been an incredible experience for me and my video production company, Image Video Solutions. Several of my biggest clients have come from contacts and referrals from GNOEA, and I can’t put a pricetag on the advice and guidance I’ve received from some of the other members. When I came to my first GNOEA meeting I was running my company from the 3rd floor of my house and today, we are in a beautiful production space in New Orleans. We’ve produced hundreds of successful national, regional and local video production and advertising campaigns, and we look forward to continuing to grow our business with the help and guidance of the GNOEA.”
GNOEA has been unexpectedly valuable and fun. When I joined, I didn’t appreciate just how much great information I could get from other business owners who face the same issues as I do every day. I’ve found solutions to nagging issues that I’ve fought for years, and have also been able to avoid problems that I never knew were coming my way. The fascinating speakers alone are worth the cost of membership, and the friendships I’ve gained are priceless.
I like being a member of GNOEA because I get to interact with other business owners outside of normal business hours in a relaxing atmosphere. I have been able to pick up tidbits of information over the years that has helped me in making critical decisions for my business. I have also enjoyed numerous guest speakers over the years that have enlightened and broadened my insight to the types of businesses and services available in the Greater New Orleans area.
GNOEA has been invaluable to me for the relationships, advice, and encouragement since May 1993. I have come to know and trust many members to use their services. Over the years many members have become both friends and clients of mine.
GNOEA gives me a great opportunity to interact with fellow business owners. I find we all have similar problems. The group is serious about business and we all enjoy helping one another. It is often that I will call for the plumber, the a/c guy, or the tree man to get the owner’s advise. Plus I get referrals. The group is most helpful on many levels.
