“What’s Your Number” -- The Talk of the Event
On Friday, September 16th, 2016, WBEC PA-DE-sNJ hosted their Annual Awards Luncheon at the Union League of Philadelphia. The Annual Awards Luncheon celebrates the success of the Women's Business Enterprise Council of PA-DE-sNJ and honors those corporations, government agencies, and women business owners who are making a difference by opening the doors of opportunity to women business enterprises.
This year, amid the chatter between old friends and fresh connections was a new phrase: “What’s Your Number?” Building off the success of the 2016 WBENC National Conference and Business Fair in Orlando, Florida, this ice-breaker encouraged all attendees to grab a button and share their “number”, stimulating and facilitating conversation during the business-to-business networking portion of the event.
Attendees selected a wide variety of numbers, ranging from a milestone date, to a spend achieved last year with diverse businesses, to the number of done deals last quarter. WBEC PA-DE-sNJ staff were present to promote and explain the exercise as attendees entered the networking space. The results: engaged participation, new connections, and dynamic conversations! The “What’s Your Number” campaign was the talk of the event. Carol Philp of CPI Creative, proud WBENC-Certified WBE and official supplier of the “What’s Your Number” button, was on hand to see her work in action and to celebrate the success of WBEC PA-DE-sNJ’s community of passionate women business owners, and the corporations who support them.
