Three years ago, the Vero Premier Women’s Network was born. Co-founders, VP of Marketing for White Glove, Anna Valencia Tillery and Cheryl Friar of the Florida Premier Women’s Network set forth to create a positive networking group. From the beginning the rules were simple, “ladies only” fostering their ability to network and public speak. Since the beginning, Regency Independent Living has been our sponsor venue. This gorgeous retirement community can seat upwards of 80 ladies in its formal dining room. However, with renovations freshly complete, our growing group has been moved to the ballroom. Now the space can seat up to 100 women comfortably. Better still, the gorgeous salad and dessert bar will be in the room with the attendees for ease of serving and keeping the group together.
Over the years, White Glove Moving & Storage has been able to help support the Vero Premier Women’s Networt by underwriting its hard costs such as website, name tags and signage. Additionally, the premier moving company allows Mrs. Valencia Tillery the ability to spend the time needed each month to promote the event, find speakers, handle reservations, update the website and host the luncheon each month.
Like clockwork, the second Friday of each month, ladies start rolling in around 11:15 am. Guests mix and mingle, fill their glasses from the array of teas, infused waters and juices then make plates from an amazing spread. The culinary team at Regency wows the group each month with gorgeous toppings and delightful proteins like chicken, shrimp and salmon. Over a dozen dessert options are also presented. While guests dine, a female speaker presents highlighting topics ranging from personal development to business best practices and healthy habits. Thereafter, each woman in attendance is able to give a 30 second commercial. These short public speaking moments allow them to promote themselves, special or event. Once all have had a chance to participate, testimonials are then shared. This is an opportunity to ladies to say something nice about their experiences with other ladies in the group. The positive messages are weaved in between door prizes that are brought into the meeting by guests so their business can be mentioned again.
After three years, attendance continues to grow and the Vero Premier Women’s Network members are able to continue to bond with one another. Regency continues to be our host venue and has been an intricate part in the overall success of the group. Presently, the group also helps two local non-profits annually with tangible items they need to be a success. Thus far we have been able to assist: Little Birthday Angels, Gifford Youth Achievement Center, Feed the Lambs Enrichment Program and Next Gen Vets.
