Great Connections at Networking Blitz
My Networking Blitz follow-up emails would not be complete without one to the Alliance! The luncheon and program were terrific, fun, informative, exciting, relevant … all those perfect Christine things! We made some wonderful connections. One might even say it was a God thing.
Leadership Lynchburg Sets the Standard for Future Leaders
I think LL was a place to learn what you allowed yourself to learn. If you wanted a project to complete, you were able to do that. If you wanted to take a closer look at your leadership style and improve upon it, you could do that as well. To say the sky is the limit might seem a bit bold but I can't think of any aspect of leadership training that wasn't addressed or could've been addressed through Leadership Lynchburg. This program helped me focus a lot more on the important topics at work and in the community and not be distracted by the others. I feel the selection of the LL participants speaks volumes on setting the standard high to allow future leaders to develop.
Stephen Dunn, City of Lynchburg
Young Entrepreneurs Academy is a Great Program
Young Entrepreneurs Academy is by far the best opportunity that I have taken part in that will change the way I view life forever. I have been introduced to a new view on business, social technique, business terminology, responsibility, public speaking, motivation and so much more!”

Numerous Networking Opportunities
Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance has been an integral part of our marketing strategy over the years. Not only have we built strong relationships with fellow business owners through their numerous networking opportunities but membership has helped our bottom line.

Small Business Saturday Helps Small Business Owners
I appreciate the Alliance's emphasis on the small business network for Small Business Saturday. When I hear that big business makes a point of teaching their employees how to be responsive to the individual customer, I come to the realization that the small business owner does this naturally, or should if he wants to stay in business. Personal service is an intricate part of who we are and what we do.
Lee Aylor, President, Aylor's Farm & Garden
Being awarded The Small Business of the Year Award has changed us in so many ways. We have seen a wide variety of benefits including congratulations from all over, new customers, and increased sales; which in return allows us to give back to our community that much more. We at Conner Produce have truly been blessed by our customers and our community and will continue to provide the quality and customer service they deserve and expect. Thank you to all of our customers and our community; you are the back bone of our business.

"The Connection show was probably the best marketing tool that Appalachian Orthodontics of Lynchburg has used so far. We made many business contacts, we met people who needed our services and called the next day for appointments, we made friends, who then referred their friends to us. It was just a great success for our practice. We will definitely participate again."
Dr. Elena Black, Appalachian Orthodontics
“There are a few events in one's life, which leave a lasting impression and make a difference in one's outlook - Leadership Lynchburg is such an event.”
Mike Griffin, Principal, CJMW Architecture
“An exceptional program that, regardless of your current title and position, will elevate your leadership skills to new heights.”
