Industry Peer Group Use Trade Event to Fortify Relationships

Transportation industry members converged on San Francisco for the 3rd Annual Chauffeur Driven Executive Retreat. Driving Results Consulting Groups facilitated a social event dinner for all members of their five groups attending this event.

“We saw the opportunity to gather all of our members who were attending, together in one place, to help them get to know the great companies in our groups, and to make new business relationships,” explained Arthur Messina, Managing Director of Driving Results. “Over 40 companies were represented, and 30 were able attend the dinner. We were fortunate to have the event at Sotto Mare Restaurant, which is owned by a former industry member, Rich Azzolino, from Gateway Global.”

Driving Results organizes and facilitates peer groups in the for-hire transportation industry. The Groups are limited to 20 members all from different markets. Members meet three times a year to share key learning experiences and enjoy educational and networking opportunities.

“I was glad to have this additional opportunity to see and meet with my group members,” explained Wasif Bhatti, President of Limo Corp Worldwide. “I was also glad to get to know the members of other groups in a more social atmosphere. It was a great compliment to the Retreat, which I plan to attend again next year. “

“We look for opportunities to assist our members in developing new business relationships, in additional ways, to compliment what they receive during their individual group meetings,” says Messina. “The Chauffeured Driven Retreat was an incredible event at a beautiful venue, in a city that people love to visit. We plan to host these events before or after every Chauffeured Driven event. The response from our members was great. We shared laughs and stories while making long lasting business relationships.”
