The World’s Best Connectors (WBCS) was founded in Phoenix, Arizona. The company virtually connects business c-suite executives, such as CEO’s, CFO’s CIO’s and COO’s with opportunities and resources to fulfill their own desired life objectives.
The Vision & Mission of The WBCs
The vision of The World’s Best Connectors (The WBCs) is for all CEOs to realize their potential, whether it is in a current career or in a future one, to the benefit of themselves, their families and their communities.
The mission of The World’s Best Connectors (The WBCs) is to give motivated CEOs the opportunities, connections and resources to enhance their relationships with family, employees, clients, government and the media. These CEOs, in turn, will provide a variety of top-quality services (e.g., branding/marketing, staffing, financial and technical assistance, etc.) to other executives and corporations, particularly those in technology and commercial development.
The 5 C’s of The WBCs
Connect with Yourself and Your Family
American Airlines will tell you to put the oxygen mask for yourself before you help others. Likewise, the priority of The WBCs is on self-development. Some of the issues which we will cover this year include transitions (e.g., “Will I Ever Get to Retire?”), balancing life and work (e.g., “Healthy Habits,” “What Happened to Leaning In?”, “Business Travel is a Bitch”), and protecting your personal wealth (e.g., “Keeping What You Make”).
Connect with Clients & Partners
Some CEOs are uncomfortable talking to large groups or having to market themselves instead of their clients, and all companies can benefit from new partnerships. Sample topics can include: “I Hate Networking”-how to improve your own and your employees’ effective use of time, “Branching Outside the US,” and “The Profits are in the Partnerships”-how to create and maintain profitable partnerships.
Connect with Government
Again, you may hold your nose, but actually government and big business are very similar, and they need each other. Sessions that will help you through the swamp (or become part of it if you want to) include “The Government: Ally or Foe?” and “Having Friends in High Places.”
Connect with Employees
Dealing with a modern workforce requires coping with change. Typical issues could include: “Not Another PowerPoint”—how to effectively “sell” your vision, “What am I Going to Do with These Millennials?”—how to recruit, retain and survive new generations or “Do I Need to Learn Spanish?”—making diversity your competitive edge.
Connect with the Media
Can’t live with them and can’t live without them! The media is changing dramatically and also becoming more important to your image. Topics include: “Advertising is for Cereal, Public Relations is for People,” “Taking Advantage of New Technologies,” and “Acing the Interview.”
