Blaze_King_LogoThe OPMG has provided thought provoking ideas, knowledge, motivation, encouragement, help with specific problems and given me great contacts. It has been far more – in so many more areas – than I expected.  As precious as time is on a daily basis, I look forward to our monthly meeting. What I learn from fellow participants, the facilitator, and guest speakers makes up for any commitment in time or cost.

Diverse backgrounds, support structures, benchmarking and sharing of best practices makes for meaningful exchange amongst a true group of professionals. Where else can you get multiple top level answers to the challenges of today’s business? (Thumbs Up from my perspective)

leoneLogoI feel very fortunate to have become a member of the OPMG.  The group of professional and experienced managers and business owners assembled is one that is open to sharing ideas, eager to help brainstorm solutions to challenges or issues, and willing to offer help or advice when asked.  I’ve enjoyed the meetings and the relationships that are being developed and have found that it has not only brought me a great resource for my own personal and professional development, but also a valuable opportunity to grow and improve my business.

Asdac_logoHaving the opportunity to meet with key people in the manufacturing sector, sharing ideas and difficulties is invaluable. I have learned a lot from the group and find it reassuring to know that people are going through the same difficulties that I am and being able to discuss these issues and get positive ideas for resolution is fantastic. Our facilitator is constantly working on new ideas for meetings and does an excellent job of communicating with all of us. I would recommend this to all leaders in business to take part in this kind of forum.
