Woodard Groups Provide Local, Face to Face Networking

Opportunities for Small Business Advisors and Small Business Owners

Woodard Groups foster deep, long-term networking relationships between small business advisors and small business owners. By interacting throughout the year – and at a local level – the professional relationships our members build in local groups are unique and highly impactful.

Most group meetings offer an in-depth training segment. Topics often include technical training on QuickBooks, training on products that integrate with QuickBooks, and practice growth and development topics.

Woodard Group meetings are a great place to cross refer services between other small business advisors. Other members of your group will provide services that you don’t offer – and vice versa – allowing you to create a team-based approach to meeting your clients’ needs.

What Small Business Advisors Are Saying about Woodard

  • As a co-leader and member of our local Woodard Group since its inception, I have enjoyed the friendships that I’ve made through our group. I know that I always have a colleague that I can contact if I have a question regarding a software best practice or a practice management question.  I love the ability to collaborate with someone that does what I do.  I also have enjoyed the additional educational experience that is brought to our group and shared. Each and every month I learn something new from someone in our group that helps me grow my own practice and improve my skills.

  • I participate in Woodard Groups as a way to network with other professionals who are enthusiastic about sharing knowledge and supporting one another in meeting our business goals. We discuss challenges, exchange leads, and research new solutions together. What started out as a few local ProAdvisors having lunch together blossomed into a vibrant and versatile group of ambitious women and men. Together we’ve won the 2014 Fastest Growing Chapter award and the 2015 Super Stars award, encouraging one another to achieve more both professionally and financially. The friendships I’ve developed through Woodard Groups participation have proven invaluable, allowing us to grow our businesses through mutual cooperation.

  • Now that the Scaling New Heights organization has transformed its brand to Woodard, I find it even more focused upon a Mission, Purpose and Vision.  When I first joined the National Advisor Network in late 2010 and built my “chapter” into one of the largest in the nation, I was excited about the concept of networking with other consultants to help each other build our practices.  Since then, my Woodard Group has been my foundation for winning and preserving clients through networking, leading-edge education, and working through issues on the Woodard Network discussion threads.  I currently acquire over 80% of my new clients through networking.  I have learned from Joe Woodard that the 3 N’s - Networking, Niche and kNowledge are the road to success.

  • For me the Woodard Group has been an opportunity to meet new people, expand my knowledge and grow my business. In the monthly sessions we hold where I am learning about additional products. My interactions with my colleagues has provided me with resources so that I can refer clients/prospects for areas I don't cover and has helped my colleagues know me so that they refer business to me.
