Following a membership-based business model, CorporateConnections® offers multiple tangible and intangible benefits to its members, and by extension, its owners. The brand is built for extraordinary people pursuing extraordinary experiences while leading extraordinary lives.
“For many, joining CorporateConnections is a business decision driven by gaining access to opportunities; however, the number one reasons members stay are the meaningful relationships, the shared collective experiences and the knowledge of their peers,” said Matt Gerding, global director of franchise development.
As a place where leaders connect, Corporate-Connections is the leading platform that unlocks the world for members through partnerships, empowerment and education.
The organization’s proven framework creates opportunities that inspire strategic alliances and accelerate business growth. These opportunities empower everyone involved to expand their horizons through multiple ways, including intimate meetings, large-scale conventions and retreats.
In the process of experiencing the extraordinary, members discover new ways to think and lead. The CorporateConnections Forum provides a confidential environment where members leverage ideas and expertise that offer clarity and enable better decision-making on personal and professional fronts.
The same goes for franchisees. “CorporateConnections ownership lives up to the highest standards at every touchpoint and is supported by a culture of excellence throughout,” said Gerding. “Our model helps you build strategic and tactical relationships through a structured and supportive environment comprised of other successful business leaders and senior executives.”
Besides expanding knowledge and building relationships and friendships, owners get to celebrate the successes of their members.
One such success story belongs to Varna Bhat, a CorporateConnections entrepreneur and CEO operating Blisswater Industries out of India. Bhat became empowered to launch her brand of Rahasya Vodka following a conversation with fellow members Yash Vasant and Gaurav Singhvi. The trio’s meeting led to an exclusive preview of the vodka at a CorporateConnections retreat at Mundota Palace, where Bhat was able to secure key investors and mentorship leads.
“Having the right people as founding investors is critical to any start-up; being able to do this through CorporateConnections gave me a great deal of comfort and saved me a lot of due diligence,” Bhat said. “I have been truly fortunate to have the support and backing of multiple CorporateConnections members from the very beginning of my journey with Blisswater, and that has provided a tremendous confidence and business boost.”
Kai Bjorn, the national director of Corporate-Connections Canada, can confirm the rewards of the organization. “It has given me an opportunity to work and network with business leaders around our country, and it gives me access to the world. People know people. And when we create these structured environments that we have – local, national, international – it’s extremely rewarding to watch people achieve their goals,” Bjorn said.
The company uses a membership differentiator that allows for multiple chapters throughout a region and one category per chapter, so the sky’s the limit for owners. Plus, executive teams with extensive experience support franchisees through the development process with intensive two-part training.
