Germantown Church of Christ
Germantown, TN 38138-7702
Use the parking space behind the Church (southern side) near the driveway canopy.

Operating since 2008 this group is frequented by the Sales & Marketing professionals but is attended by a strong cross section of professionals. Everyine in transition is now in sales, which provides incremental value to attendees and from their positive eneregy meetings. In addition to offering traditional topics and support, group differentiators include:
- holding evening meetings to support those unemployed or under-employed
- offering support for the special needs and opportunities of the under-employed
- the moderators both having sales experience, one has recruitment experience
- active promotion on building and using a personal "Brag Book"
At the meeting a brief prayer before and after the meeting is offered; coffee is served. Attendee introductions use the 30 Second Elevator Speech and any needs are discussed. Presentations by the moderators, other members, and external resources are part of the regular program to support transitioners in all lines of work.
Membership requests may only be made in person to the Moderator(s) during our meetings.
If you find value in attending this meeting, you are encouraged to ask the Moderator while at the meeting for Membership.
