Our members are business owners and professionals from a broad variety of companies and industries. We share in common the belief that business success is enhanced by the relationships we build.
Our focus is promoting the development of professional relationships and business success among our members and facilitating new relationships among our respective clients, prospects and strategic partners.
We meet the third Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7:30pm. All WHIMBY meetings are held at The Westwood Club on 6200 W. Club Lane in Richmond, Virginia.
If you would like to check us out, please arrange to attend one of our upcoming meetings as a guest of one of our members. See our member list for someone you know. A guest fee of $10 covers light refreshments and two drinks.
Membership is not restricted by geography, business focus, race, creed or gender and we do not limit membership due to overlapping professions or industries or services. New WHIMBY members are invited and sponsored by a current member.
Our meetings and programs are possible through the support of our sponsors. WHIMBY sponsors are existing members that get a focused 5 minute presentation and generously cover the expenses for the room and bar.
People performance is my passion. The two sides of the coin in accomplishing this are Career Path Planning and Hiring. Hiring decisions are successful when a Top Performer is selected.
The payback is many times greater than hiring an average performer. Hiring a below average performer is often costlier that hiring a dud because it is easy to stick with below average.
Students or candidates choosing a Career Path that matches their interest, natural behavior and ability is equally as important to become a top performer in any field. Superior performance requires drive that comes from love of the work and a natural fit that generates energy from doing the job. A good match requires understanding the nature of both the job and the candidate. Attributes For Success provides services that helps with the Career Path and Hiring decisions.
