Who are NLOWE Ambassadors?
Getting Paired with an Ambassador
Meeting new business connections can be difficult when you gravitate to familiar faces at networking events. Ask NLOWE to pair you up with an Ambassador to help you meet new contacts within our Membership. Ambassadors are also beneficial for new members when attending their first NLOWE event.
How does being paired with an Ambassador benefit you?
Our Ambassadors serve as a link between the NLOWE staff and our membership, they will be:
- Additional NLOWE contacts who can provide you assistance and answer your questions;
- Friendly faces that welcome you at events;
- Connectors who will introduce you to other members and key contacts;
- Sources of potential referral opportunities; and,
- Liaisons who encourage communication and feedback between you and NLOWE board and staff.
