Jane Pollak takes networking to a whole new level on Wednesday, June 2 promptly at 7:15am. Her company, Remarkable Women, holds events for successful business people looking to solve challenges. These networking sessions are like no other. “They’re about people helping people become more successful,” says Jane. “There’s no fluff; every moment is productive.”

What makes this networking unique is that Jane limits the events to 40 proactive people who are already successful business owners. She focuses the conversation so that participants can maximize the exchange of their expertise. Jane says, “Past events have sold out and people are signing up for them again and again.”

Jane offers this advice for networkers as they share their expertise:
• Give a voice to what’s real for you in your business
• Realize that we all share these issues
• Listen for fresh ideas and wisdom from those who don’t know you or your history
• Listen to your own wisdom as you share your experiences
• Meet people in a more meaningful way by sharing information, offering solutions and strategies based on your own experience.

Pamela Miles from Pamela Miles LLC and Chamber Board Member says, “Jane makes everyone feel remarkable.” Besides the advice participants give, participants enjoy close connection with others; education and support from people who also are learning to “balance it all;” the opportunity to clarify your own messaging and branding. They also share inspiration, ideas, clients and referrals.

Jane begins each event in a large circle, with each person introduces themselves. The participants answer meaningful questions like: “What was your biggest success?” What are you most grateful for?” Then attendees break into groups of four and each person gets a five-minute focus, bringing up one challenge for evaluation. The other people provide their feedback and advice. After a brief break, they gather in another group of four.

At the end of the meeting, Jane calls the group together again and asks, “What did you learn from this? Any hot tips you’d like to give?” This is the moment people pull out their notebooks and pens and scribble. “There’s so much wisdom here,” says Jane. Many people network afterwards and stay connected. Jane holds regular events in New York City and Fairfield County. “I love connecting people,” says Jane. “When great people get together, magic happens.”
