Our guest speaker last Friday was Gil Cohen, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Omaha Magazine. Mr. Cohen shared with us that he was recently asked to join the Business Ethics Alliance to get the word out about ethical business practices. His top 3 "don'ts" when talking business are:
- Don't disparage your competition
- No Bribery
- Never say "To be perfectly honest with you...."
Melanie Rogge, Vice President of Foundation Development at the YMCA joined us last Friday to express her appreciation for the 2014 YCPO grant her organization received. The grant was used for their "Ready in 5" program that prepares young children of refugees for kindergarten.
