Memphis, TN, (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
The Greater Memphis Chamber has teamed up with leading online executive education company Gazelles Growth Institute to offer members access to online training from the nation's top business experts at an exclusive discount.
“Innovative entrepreneurship is a cornerstone of Memphis’s thriving economy and prosperous future,” said Amy Daniels, Senior Vice President, Membership & Communications, The Greater Memphis Chamber. “The All-Inclusive Corporate Membership Program helps us with our mission of ensuring that our members maintain their competitive advantage. We're proud to be partnering with Gazelles Growth Institute, and to offer their high-quality educational programs to our members at a reduced cost.”
Known as the “voice of Memphis business,” the Greater Memphis Chamber’s role is to advocate for, connect and educate businesses, ranging from small companies to multi-national firms, in the Greater Memphis region. The Chamber credits Michael Synk with making them aware of the opportunities of the Gazelles Growth Institute.
“This new partnership will offer a Fortune 500- like executive education to thousands of small and medium-sized businesses in Memphis, allowing them to learn tangible new strategies that will enhance business growth and give them a competitive edge,” said Gazelles Growth Institute Co-Founder Verne Harnish. “Ultimately, we also want to help communities and enhance local job growth by helping companies everywhere become and stay competitive.”
Memphis is the latest chamber to partner with the Gazelles Growth Institute to offer its members this great opportunity to improve their bottom lines. The Gazelles Growth Institute has ongoing arrangements with several other chambers of commerce across the U.S., including the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce, and plans to expand its offer to chambers in Canada and Australia as well.
Through these partnerships, chamber members are able to purchase a Corporate Membership at a 10 percent discount. The all-inclusive Corporate Membership program – offered at three price points based on the organization’s size – features a combination of e-courses in key business subjects, an organizational health checkup from cutting-edge thought leaders such as Malcolm Gladwell, Seth Godin, Pat Lencioni, and Geoff Smart. New seminars are added every month, and members will have access to these new courses as they are created.
Additionally, these partnerships benefit local chambers by generating a new revenue stream and enhancing the value of their memberships.
This program was brought to our attention by GMC member Michael Synk, of In-Synk. Michael is a Senior Certified Gazelles Coach and a local business, strategy, and execution expert. Michael will provide local personal support for the courses to chamber members looking for additional help.
