Neal Bracewell Insurance, ribbon cutting

The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) welcomed a new business to Torrance with a ribbon cutting today, Neal Bracewell, State Farm Insurance. This is the first ribbon cutting I attended that was not held at the end of the business day and it is Monday, a couple days before the 4th of July. I fully expected the event to be a little less well-attended than usual, but it was actually quite the opposite; the place was packed. It was pretty clear that Neal has a lot of family and friends supporting his new venture and that combined with the support of his local Chamber of Commerce should ensure (no pun intended) that he will be quite successful.

Photos from the Gardena Valley Chamber of Commerce Regional Mixer

These photos were taken last night at the Gardena Valley Chamber of Commerce Regional Mixer which was held at the Holiday Inn, Harbor Gateway. As regular readers are aware, we joined the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) at the end of last year because we decided that 2012 would be dedicated to promoting local businesses, charities and non-profits. I have discovered that attending regional mixers was a great way to generate business and gain more exposure. Last night was no exception.

With Chamber of Commerce members representing Gardena Valley, Torrance, Harbor City/Harbor Gateway, Wilmington, San Pedro, Manhattan Beach, Lomita, El Segundo, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes Peninsula, Carson and Hawthorne it made for a great networking event with plenty of business opportunities. There was a nice spread of appetizers and lots of door prizes. Synergy-DTI gave away another SEO report and we won a few prizes including a bowling party at Lucky Strike and some skin lotions from CH Labs.

I have said it before, but if you are a business owner that can use more business, you might want to consider joining your local Chamber of Commerce Continue reading

TACC Networking at Noon for June at Tony Roma’s

Yesterday was the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) Networking at Noon for June; and this time it was held at the Tony Roma’s in Torrance. The Networking at Noon is held monthly at various restaurants in the Torrance, CA area and gives members of the Torrance Chamber additional opportunities to exchange business cards with other local business owners or their representatives. Every attendee is given 30 seconds to talk about who they are and what service or product their business provides. I took the opportunity to explain why it is I have my camera with me at all times and how I use the photos to promote local businesses and charities. I think they are starting to notice.

In addition to the “30 second intros” each month one person is named the spotlight speaker and gets 5 minutes to talk about what they do. I can’t wait to get that opportunity. There are door prizes given out and Synergy-DTI, Inc gave away an SEO report to a lucky winner that was getting ready to purchase it. I know she was happy she showed up.
