Business networking event to be held Feb. 24

Business and community leaders of all types and sizes are invited to attend "Bagels and Business Cards," a before-hours business networking event from the West Shore Chamber of Commerce. On Tuesday, Feb. 24, from 8-9:30 a.m., enjoy networking and a bagel breakfast at Palace Business Centres, Suite 100, 24650 Center Ridge Road in Westlake.

This event is free to all business owners, managers and sales executives and no RSVP is required. All that is required is a desire to network with other business leaders to grow your business and of course, a lot of business cards. There will be drawings and prizes, including a free Palace Business Center office for a month and an Amazon gift card.

In addition there will be an optional Early Bird Session at 7:30 a.m. presented by Mark Boepple of My Social Networking Coach. Mark will share actionable tactics on how to leverage your in-person business networking to improve your online social media efforts along with real-world techniques on how to protect your reputation online.

For business professionals that rely on local relationships there will be a special presentation by Ryan Roche of Roche Wealth Management at 9:15 a.m. Ryan will teach us how we can team up with a dozen other local business leaders (not your competition) to learn new skills and meet new West Shore Chamber of Commerce members to help grow your business.

This is a Power of MORE! event of the West Shore Chamber, sponsored by Palace Business Centres and My Social Networking Coach. The Power of MORE! is a cooperative effort of westside chambers of commerce that delivers more opportunities, more benefits and more networking events to help members grow their businesses.

The attendance at Power of MORE! events has been amazing and continues to grow every year. Each time a chamber member attends a Power of MORE! event they are entered into a drawing to win many fabulous prizes. This year’s grand prize winner will drive away in a brand new car. This is just one of the many reasons the Power of MORE! continues to grow and why you have to join us at this free Bagels and Business Cards business networking event.

If you are responsible for growing your company's sales and have not yet experienced the Power of MORE! this event is for you. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, Feb. 24. If you can’t make this event and want to learn more about how the Power of MORE! can help grow your business, contact Tammy Bertrand, member services director at or call 440-777-3368.
