Largo Impact Series Kickoff Breakfast

Kickoff breakfast for the Prince George's Chamber of Commerce "Largo Impact Series."

This blog post is brought to you by the great folks at University of Maryland University College. Their sponsorship made it possible for me to create these images and present them for your enjoyment.

A new Regional Medical Center is about to begin construction in Largo, MD and it will be a huge complex with lots of business opportunities that are totally unrelated to medicine. The people who staff the medical center will also be consumers of all types of goods and services and now is the time to position yourself to provide those goods and services. 

If you wait until you see the groundbreaking on TV with lots of executives standing around a ceremonial shovel, you will have missed the boat. The relationships you establish to position yourself for business opportunities occurs at events like this one, well in advance of any construction. If you have any questions or to find out about future events in the series, connect with Chauka Reid on LinkedIn or contact her at the chamber at (301) 731-5000.

I did say it was a breakfast, right? I was on the job, so I couldn't partake, but the food looked spectacular and there was a ton of it. I would say that the staff at the Metro Points hotel had outdone themselves, but they've over-delivered like this at every event the chamber has had at the hotel. If you're hosting an event, you definitely want to talk to the people at Metro Points hotel. Call (301) 459-6700 or reach out to the General Manager, Kevin Beard on LinkedIn.

Homeowners attended to register their questions and concerns regarding the impact that the new development will have on their neighborhoods. This kind of participation is important. If you don't exercise your voice, you don't have one.

 If you look hard, you'll see Cydnee way off in the distance. Tiniest person in there, Cydnee knew she needed to be up on that stage so people could see her!

All I can say about what follows is some people just need you to hold the camera for them and they will entertain themselves.

If you have any questions about the chamber, Metro Points Hotel, the Largo Impact Series, or anything else, ask Chauka. That's what I do. She knows everything and everybody and she works tirelessly to help you grow your business.
