Networking up the River!

Sign up for our first river trip. Magnificent views with breakfast.

We are all looking forward to this special event.  The tide will be coming in and greenhead season is over! We will meet on the dock at 7:10 am.

Click on the side bar image of the river to register via eventbrite, or drop off a check at Lark Bolduc’s office at 104 High St # 2.

At our Table Networking on Friday July 21 we recapped what we learned from our  speakers this past year.

We discussed what we learned and how we have or can apply topics such as:

  • portraying a confident image and exemplifying a positive mental attitude
  • the importance of relating your personal story to connect with people and promote your business
  • Monetizing what you love! How this can lead to a successful business
  • How expressing yourself via various methods such as videos, social media, and personally created communities are vital to expanding your business and finding new clients

    The Forum welcomes hearing your suggestions for dynamic speakers you may know or have heard, as well as topics you are interested in learning more about. 

    The North Shore Business Forum, Inc. (NSBF) is a group of small business owners from Boston’s North Shore who meet on the first and third Friday of each month for informal lectures given by business owners on a wide variety of topics. Members give a 30-second introduction of their business at each meeting. All business owners are welcome: future, past, profitable, experienced or beginning. Meetings are from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. (registration starts at 7:15) at Acapulcos, 900 Cummings Center, Beverly, MA. The $10.00 admission fee includes a breakfast buffet. No pre-registration necessary.

The “Meeting After the Meeting” Returns!

The North Shore Business Forum is re-instituting the concept of having members share their expertise with other members on an informal basis, in brief, no-cost sessions after its Friday morning networking meetings.

If you are an NSBF member with an interest in offering your own “Meeting After the Meeting” session in the future, please see NSBF President Brett Kirkpatrick at one of our meetings, or email him at events@nsbforum.org .

If the Beverly, MA public school system announces a “no school” snow day on one of our scheduled Fridays, then the NSBF meeting for that day will be cancelled. Check the NSBF Facebook page for updates as well. (See our “About NSBF” page for more information.)
