The Alliance has impacted my life in so many ways. I am a better business leader, father and friend thanks to the relationships I have formed over my decade plus in the room. The best practices I have learned from our members has propelled the growth of my business to the top of my industry and the mentorship I received early in my tenure has taught me how to guide newer members on their path to success.
Time after time I have seen members reach into their amazing networks to help with whatever the need was, be it medical, personal or philanthropic with incredible results. This interconnectivity goes so far beyond the business benefits for which I originally joined the Alliance. This is truly a one of a kind organization filled with one of a kind people.
“It's more than the business connections for me. The access to knowledge and information is critical in helping me run a successful company and bring value to our clients. The passion that so many of our members have for giving back to their communities by founding or leading non-profits is also inspirational and speaks to the essence of the Alliance.”
“The Alliance is a critical part of my company’s growth strategy. A fellow member was instrumental in our closing a Fortune 1000 client. He reached out to the CFO, who he had a strong relationship with, and helped push their decision in Digiscribe’s favor. You can’t overestimate the value of those connections.”
Simply put, the Alliance has laid the groundwork for my growth as a Business Owner and a Business Leader. When I started at the Alliance, I was a sixteen person “Architectural firm” that has since grown into a 100 person “Architectural-Engineering firm” recognized as top in my field in New York.
As a 15-year member of the Alliance, many of which I have also served on the Board, the Alliance has helped me develop the skillset of running strategically productive meetings, helped me develop a confident comfort level with Client presentations and public speaking. The association with other Business Owners also has served as a sound board for new ideas and policies that I am able to formulate and apply to my business.
Most important though are the individuals I’ve met and the strong business and personal relationships I continue to nurture to this day with members of the Alliance.
“The Alliance has become an integral part of my life. It is made up of leaders in the business world who not only provide incredible connections for my business but have become true friends. We all strive to help each other in many different ways, whether it be making introductions for each other or helping family members in job searches or with medical needs. This is truly a wonderful group of great people who want to help each other.”
"The more involved I became with the Alliance, the more I benefited from the amazing connections and introductions offered by other members. As a result, our firm acquired an agency in the UK. It's amazing to think that the power of the Alliance reaches across the Atlantic!"
Ever feel in your heart that you should have won a deal but didn’t close it because you couldn’t have an impactful conversation with the top decision-maker? Enter the Alliance. As leaders in their respective industries, Alliance members have deep relationships with tens of thousands of companies and are committed to helping each other succeed. A strategic call or email from one member routinely opens previously locked doors for another. The Alliance’s "Pay It Forward" culture ensures that all members act as a team knowing that in the long run everyone in the room wins.
It’s often lonely at the top. C-level executives and business owners are expected to have all the answers, but sometimes lack the internal resources or peers to stay current on all the issues. The Alliance peer groups, committees and MBA series of strategic speakers and events give members multiple forums to seek advice from trustworthy experts. Whether it be how to start an ESOP for your employees, what cutting edge technology might revolutionize how you do business, or understanding an economy centered on an increasingly important millennial culture the Alliance has you covered.
Peers, friends, family. Alliance members often join for the Access and Advice but stay for the Community they discover in the process. We do more than share our businesses. We share our passions. Golf, Wine, Fishing, Food, Charitable Causes. We are a diverse group that bonds on the softball field, during private tours of iconic NY spaces like Grand Central and The UN, and over cocktails and karaoke. Lifelong friendships are formed throughout successes and challenges. Our guests often join in the festivities as they become part of our ever-expanding Alliance family.
