Table Networking:

Learning and sharing experiences, pitfalls and strengths!

presented by

Charlotte Ostberg McAleer

Charlotte leads our quarterly table networking as we find out more about fellow local entrepreneurs.

We will share work experiences, what we’ve learned and how it can help your business.

Charlotte Ostberg McAleer has lived in the Boston area for over 20 years. Residing in Beverly for the past 13 years, she has grown to love the North Shore.  Charlotte has strong ties to Europe with family spread throughout France, Denmark and Sweden. She also studied, lived and worked in Spain. Charlotte enjoys yoga, being active, watching her two children play whatever sport is in season and taking advantage of all that the North Shore has to offer with her family.  She loves being outdoors. From the beaches and boating to bike trails and hikes. In addition, Charlotte has been enjoying many of the new restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues in the area. She takes advantage of the culture and environment. She also enjoys visiting her family overseas as well as hosting them whenever possible.

After 15 years in the field of education, ranging from preschool to higher and international education, Charlotte decided to stay at home for a few years and focus on her two young children. During that time, she started a small business and was active in the community in a variety of ways.

 Charlotte chose to go into real estate for a variety of reasons. One of the most important ones was because her own personal experience of buying her first home was not an enjoyable one. Charlotte is eager to put her clients at ease and support them through the sometimes stressful process in order to make their experience an enjoyable one. Charlotte’s background as a teacher of all ages gave her the unique ability to really listen to her clients’ needs and concerns. She has patience and instills a sense of trust and understanding.  She is eager to help other families find their house in the unique region she is proud to call home.

  • 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 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.)
