Welcome to Exceptional Connections Networking
Our networking organization was founded in August of 2009 by Cyndi O’Neill-Dady. Thanks to our loyal, dedicated and amazing Exceptional Connections Networking Community we celebrated our 7th Anniversary in 2016. Exceptional Connections offers the opportunity to connect monthly with positive, and like-minded Entrepreneurs and Business Professionals without the often burdensome cost of an annual membership, mandatory attendance, forced referrals or the need to find a substitute when you are not able to attend . At ECN you pay for your networking and lunch is included.
Exceptional Connections provides a relationship based approach to networking that encourages and nurtures relationships. We teach the ease and power of building your business one relationship at a time. One of our guiding principles is ‘The Law of Contribution’ which states that “the level of your success and happiness is in direct proportion to the number of people that you serve selflessly”. At ECN, we define success as sowing, not reaping, and we model and teach this philosophy. Robert Louis Stevenson reinforces this belief, ” I consider the success of my day based on the seeds I sow, not the harvest I reap”. With this powerful mindset, businesses naturally flourish as powerful advocates are created, and transformed into an army of raving fans…
Our Mission is to teach and support small businesses to make Exceptional Connections, build relationships one at a time that lead to new friendships, endless referrals, and powerful advocates. We are also committed to offering resources and training to achieve networking mastery!
