She isn’t there just for financial gain, she truly cares about your success! When you take her coaching courses you receive more than initially anticipated. After a session with Biba you feel fully empowered and capable of handling all of your business ventures.

I’m listening for the final remarks of today’s Tuesday webinar series about Networking. I found it really useful and wrote down some great ideas about networking. Biba (our speaker) is a brilliant teacher. Being a teacher myself, I love the way she structured the information and explained everything. And I like the idea of having “virtual coffe” with people before meeting them in person 🙂 That means interacting in social media, chatting over Skype etc. I love social media so it’s the most natural thing for me to do :))

Thank you for taking the time (and extra time) to talk with me about promoting my business. You gave me some very valuable tools and tips, some which I have already implemented. For example, the black background of my website made the words too difficult to read. so even though I love that look, I switched to a template with a white background so my audience can see what I am saying.
I also love what you said about not trying to sell my services with networking opportunities. I am developing this business because I have become disenchanted with an industry that pushes people to “sell, sell, sell” and I just couldn’t take it anymore. I don’t want to sell things to people, I want my expertise and skills to serve their needs.
What you said about making connections with people and finding things that are of interest and important to them, as mode of operating, fits my personal and professional style. It makes it easy for me to think about networking with others. Andrea Howardwww.socialmediamaxima.com

SPEEDBIZ EXPO June  2012

virguleThis was my first speed networking experience and it definitely won’t be my last. It was very different and new to me. I think it’s a great idea. My favorite part about the speed networking is that it allows just enough time to explain your business and what you do while also avoiding the issues of encountering someone who would take up 15 minutes to explain what they do and not allowing you your turn. I met a lot of people that day, some who gave me great connections for future expos, some who want to host a party and others who purchased some of the items I had for sale that day. As a vendor, I thought you guys choose the right venue. It was very organized and spacious as well.

virguleHi Biba , It was a professional pleasure working with you at your recent Speed Biz Expo last week . High quality event with sponsors , exhibitors and the interesting & nice consumers (guests) which are the heart-blood of our events . Nice variety of exhibitors and a good balance of them , not competitive to one another . I liked the comfortable Hotel (Quality Inn) and very good central location in South Florida , Plantation/Sunrise areas . Your progressive and innovative Speed Networking concept really is re-freshing at a time when business is really building back-up in the So-Flo. Economy and greater Florida as a whole , short , to the point and sweet to meet other like-minded professionals , I’m getting alot of good pre-qualified leads already . Very nice mix of people participating with Women’s Prosperity Network , Nancy , Trish and there Lovely Team always with a good word of Wisdom , Marketing and Prosperity for the Marketplace . It was a privelege for myself , Michael Poggi and the Poggi Wealth Institute to be involved exhibiting and as one of your guest speakers on Tax -Free and Turn Key Out of the Box Investment’s . We sincerly Thank-You and look forward to the next event we will participate in hopefully sooner then later. Thank-You .
Anthony Caprio – Marketing Director 0f Poggi Wealth Institute –

virguleIt was my 1st speed networking and I like it, I think it’s cool! It cuts out a lot of extra talking that goes on at networking events, and you can quickly connect with someone that may need your services and vice/versa. I made very interesting new contacts and as a sponsor and vendor I made a sale on the spot, and a couple of sales afterwards.

This has been one of the most well thought out, effective expos I’ve participated in (and I’ve have participated in quite a few). I have paid waaay more for a vendor table, and not received as much value as I got from the SpeedBiz Expo. Everything from the presentations, to the swag bags, to the videos, and features on your website and social media was planned to every detail- and that means a lot. Furthermore, I really enjoyed THE PEOPLE who attended the expo. Everyone was so friendly and nice- and that’s the type of people I want to do business with. I will DEFINITELY participate in the next networking event, and expo that you guys have. GREAT JOB!

virguleThank you for putting on such a great event. This was my first Speed Networking event and I walk away with a new outlook on networking. I attend many networking events and most of them are hit or miss, but this was a guarantee HIT! The idea of speed networking allows everyone to have a chance to meeting and exchange their business information in 2 minutes. This allow me to focus on individuals who can benefit from my services at the breakout sessions. I must say that I connect with everyone in the room and from those connections I made 4 appointments and 1 new client. I highly recommend Speed Networking! Alex– www.highfivewebsolutions.com

virguleIt was a pleasure to participate to SpeedBiz Expo, as I had the opportunity to meet with other entrepreneurs who are interested in connecting with their specific community. The speed networking gave me a chance to get a snapshot of the “why” people are in business “who” are their ideal connection and “how” I can assist them in making those connections. The speakers provided valuable information that I took away to integrate into my current practices. Thank you for bringing us together. Pamela Bryant, www.MassageHealsYou.comXXX

virguleThe combination of Speed Networking, speakers, and Expo allow to improve my skills and connect with lots of people having meaningful conversations at the same time.
I made very interesting contacts and it was a great opportunity to reconnect with people I met before, and learn about lots of new businesses to build strategic alliances. On Monday morning I already got a new client from the Speed Networking. Now I’m following up with great enthusiasm from people with whom I connected really well.

I made more contacts at this event in two short hours then I have at the last 10 events I attended. Not only did I get two prospective new clients [one for a listing, one for a sale], I met two other people, each who can help me in my business.

virgule“Best networking event I have ever been to in my life and I’ve been to more than I can count. Why was it so great? Because two minutes is all you need to make a connection and then it’s all about the follow-up. The group was small enough to follow-up with everyone after the speed part, too. And since we had all met, we could ensure each other’s connections — “oh, you met ___, they can really help you with _____.” I’m telling you, it rocked! Thanks again Biba Pedron! Looking forward to next time.

Then last year, I met Biba, she helped me create an attractive, eye-catch business card. I am now proud to give it out as it is a true representation of my business. I experienced the same “make-over” with my elevator pitch. Biba helped me transform it into a clear, dynamic and efficient message that now helps me now “stand out from the crowd” wherever I go. Using her system, I also learnt how to publish a newsletter to attract potential clients and promote my services. More importantly how to make money with my newsletter and convert prospects into clients. I am more confident than ever in the success of my business. I really would like to thank Biba for her valuable advice, insights and support.

virguleYou will be happy to know, I recently landed a lucrative technology consulting assignment with Moet-Hennesy in Paris, France. Reading your articles on networking, helped me fine tune my networking skills. Using your networking advice, my technology consulting company, NetTECH Systems, was awarded a 12-15 week consulting contract which will generate $50,000-$60,000 in profit. Thank you so much for caring and sharing, Biba.

virguleI joined Biba4Network in the Fall of 2005. I had no idea the return on my investment would be as quick and powerful as it turned out to be. In early November, I presented to one of Biba’s groups. First, the distinct difference with Biba’s programs is she limits each meeting to 15 people. This means that each of us gets to connect with the other attendees. This vastly differs from other networking groups I’ve participated in over the years.

Second, I landed 3 new clients that night! Wow. That means that Biba attracts the entrepreneurs and go-getters I’m seeking. As a sole practitioner copywriter, I spend a significant amount of time trying to originate new business, and any time I can meet 15 interested people in one shot, that’s Hugely valuable.

Third, one of the attendees was a nutritionist and I was in need of [let’s say] a diet upgrade. I hired Floriana Betti and she’s now discussing a marketing project with me. Win-win All the Way Around.

If you want to expand your business, meet people like you, learn new topics and gather new information, and have fun, then Biba4Network is for you. Hope to meet you soon.”

virguleI just wanted to write and tell you what a great benefit I have received in coming to your networking events. It has been extremely good for my business. I have met many people that I continue to work with. The contacts have been varied and positive – and have often led to other contacts and business. All very successfully.
I like the way you put the events together. You are charming and yet business-like, and you make it easy to network. Thank you.

Susan Neri-Friedwald, Founder, The New Behavior Institute, NY

virguleI enjoyed meeting you at your Mixer in September. I have made a very good connection with a woman I met there, so I thank you for making that possible!

virguleWhen you join Biba4Network’s Group your business is no longer a small business. You now have the resources of a large company. Your fellow members help you with Research and Development, Marketing, Promotions, and Public Relations, all for a very nominal fee.

virguleNetworking is about building relationships and each others businesses. Biba is the catalyst that makes it all happen. Her personality and her business skills have helped me think and do things at a much higher level.

virguleBiba has helped me increase my business by 30%. She has also made me realize the vast potential of networking.

virguleMy experience with Biba4Network has been excellent.
You “walk the talk”, you really build valuable relationships with different kind of professionals and you can take full advantage of their services or recommend them to your clients with confidence because you meet them in person and you understand their goals and style and you can guess if there is a possible match there or not.

virguleI met Biba only a couple of months ago but I already acquired 2 new clients from the meetings and made some good connection with professionals that work in field related to Holistic Health, PR, and organization and administration of small business.
Floriana Betti, Holistic Health Counselor, NY

virgule“Biba’s networking events are amazing. You never know who you’ll meet or what will develop. At the last meeting I met someone new for whom focusing ON her business was very timely. She signed up for my Save-Your-Business Tele-Boot Camp as her next step. I’m confident it will be a win-win. Thanks, Biba, for creating such an intimate and personal way to meet other small business people.”

virguleI would like to thanks Biba for what she did for me and my business. I was almost ready to give up on my project. I tried to start it on my own and very quickly I faced administratives problems I was not prepared for. While I was stuck in the process, I met Biba and she immediatly solved all my problems, helping me pursue my American Dream. With her professionalism, kindness and disponibility, she doesn’t hesitate to open all the doors for you. She is 100% invested in your projet. She never takes NO for an answer and never gives up until you get satisfaction.
I definitely recommend to use her services if you also plan to start your business in the US.
Kevin Kouassi, Brussels (Belgium) – President, Emod Trading, NY

virguleStarting a business in the US, Dream or Reality
No matter how motivated we are, how well we prepared our project, no matter how experienced and bold we are, to start a business in the US as a foreigner requires much more than that.
We need to find the right and indispensable person who will help us walk through the starting process and the American administrative maze, the person who will help us step by step make our dream a reality, who will always serve our best interest, who will be there for us to find solutions to our problems. We were lucky, we met Biba and our dream came true. There are many ways to venture to Manhattan Island, but the most reliable is Biba, without any doubt ».

virguleA short email to tell you that it was nice to hear or/and talk to you guys last week at Biba4Network.
It is nice to see a group of people devoted to a such creativity to build up businesses or relationships.
Thank you to Biba and good luck to everyone.

virguleEach time Biba, President of Biba4Network worked with our PR & Fundraising committee our goals were met beyond expectations.

virguleMy name is Allie Matthews. I am an Event Planner/Fund Raiser. When I left my twenty-year position at AT&T I considered starting my own event planning business but did not make the proper connections. I went to Biba4Network in the hopes of meeting some contacts to find a job. After the first meeting Biba and some of the members called me the next day and gave me some contacts. I am pleased to say by the third week I had my first client. I am now in business for myself as I had originally planned. I wish I had met Biba4Network sooner. Thank you for your encouragement and support.

virguleBiba Pédron, founder and driving force behind Biba4Network, has been a great marketing resource and alliance in helping me build the Brain Exchange Roundtable. She’s not only a true professional, she’s a pleasure to work with. I will definitely continue to use her services.”

virguleBiba’s networking groups provide the benefits of having a core group of people that allows us to get to know and trust each other, while at the same time offering the flexibility of letting me pick and choose from a selection of evening and lunch time meetings and the opportunity to meet new people. I highly recommend Biba4Network to everyone.

virguleBiba4Network events are well organized and professionally conducted. The small groups maximize personal networking and business development opportunities. I have made several excellent contacts for my business, and I intend to do my best to route business to those who I have gotten to know at Biba4Network meetings throughout the New York metropolitan area.

virguleThank you very much for the Biba4Network-Mixer last night. It was a great evening! The presentation was very interesting and I really enjoyed meeting everyone.
Please keep me on your mailing list for future events…

virguleThank you very much for hosting the Holiday Party last night. The event and venue did provide a comfortable atmosphere to foster valuable business relationships. I really enjoyed it and your guests were delightful. As a resolution, I will endeavor to attend your monthly events on a regular basis.The event, as usual, provided a unique networking atmosphere for relationship building. I congratulate you on your drive and dedication.

virguleThe Biba4Network group is small but powerful. The more intimate than usual setting made it much easier for me to connect with people I enjoyed speaking with while finding people I needed to meet. Lydia Bisanti, who is a pleasure to work with, was able to quickly and economically upgrade my promotional material — other graphcis designers have been scaring me off for about a year. The friendly atmosphere also made it easy for me to meet colleagues with whom I have been able to develop mutually beneficial strategic alliances. Biba is a caring hostess who helps her guests interact. I encourage anyone who is reading this to join and come to the next event.
Rachel Lurie, Financial Services Professional,New York Life Insurance Company, New York

virguleBiba provides exceptional value in her friendly and relaxed, but high-quality networking events. She takes a personal interest in members and goes the extra mile to make sure that they make connections that can most help them, whether it be by making an introduction, providing a forum for members to “show their stuff,” or by encouraging people to contact specific participants who may be helpful. I really enjoy working with her.
Jim Fell, JBFell Consulting, NY

virguleBiba Pedron has created events through biba4network for the English and French speaking community to do business networking. I attended this event at Independence Bank and was glad to see the 20 people who attended sincerely wanted to network and know about other people’s businesses. About 45 minutes was allotted to network and then Jim Fell, a business coach, gave a lecture about being able effective in making a good impression and creating strong relationships with the prospects and employees. Having a smaller group of people to network was great to actually have a more intimate contact than what I normally experience.
Henry Pierre, Massage, NY

virguleI thoroughly enjoyed your networking group. I, too, believe in establishing long-term relationships with people, and prefer the in-depth style of your meeting to the superficial, mob scene of other groups. I plan to follow-up with most of the other attendees.
Roberta Kuehl, Save it Now, NY

virguleI really enjoyed your event. It most appealed to me by the fact that it was a small group of participants, so we didn’t lose our personalities, felt comfortable to freely express our opinions and were able to truly meet people instead of just exchanging business cards. Thank you very much! I would be happy to participate in your events in the future.
Natasha, NY


virguleLast night was my third networking meeting and I enjoyed it as much as the others. I love that you make everybody feel comfortable by creating a friendly atmosphere. Each of these meetings was very informative for me since it is my first attempt at networking. Working at home alone, I feel very isolated, and this has changed since I met you. I am now part of a group and I can share my experiences and learn from the experience of others. Thank you for your good work!
Lydia Bisanti, Graphic Designer, NY

virguleThe event last night was a huge success! I had a wonderful time. I saw some people I already know that it was very good to see, and I believe some business will be generated because of it. And I met some new people. And, as always, the people you attract to your parties are very nice and very interesting. I like that you’ll be following up with a list of attendees so that we can follow up. A great idea!

virguleBiba, I really enjoyed last week’s seminar. The speakers really knew what they were talking about, and they provided some valuable information on the topics being covered. The fact that they were American was a good thing: I doubt a person from France would’ve known as much as a person from here on these particular topics. Also, thanks to the fact that we were such a small group, all the questions asked were thoroughly answered.
The most important part of the seminar for me was the first half (the visa part). The second half was very interesting too, but I’ve already attended similar seminars on employment in my school. However the guide on how to prepare for an interview is very useful and will definately help me for future job interviews. Thanks to this seminar I now have the phone number of an immigration attorney, which can be very important if anything comes up. I’m not sure if there was a need for any additional information on these topics. It seems like everyone’s questions were answered. I was personally hoping to hear from Cynthia that G4 Visas are easily transferable into greencards, but unfortunately it’s not the case.
I want to thank you for having allowed me to attend this seminar…
Sincerely,
Nick Tillet, NY

virguleI’ve been to nearly every networking event in New York. And let me tell you, Biba4Network events are something DIFFERENT. Unlike a lot of other events I’ve been to, I didn’t exchange business cards with 40 random people that I’ll never do business with. Instead, I met several great people who all had excellent ideas for my business and high quality referrals for me. If you are looking for exceptional contacts, this is the network for you. If you are looking to meet a bunch of random people, you’ll need to go to one of those other networking groups.”
Laura Allen, Co-Founder, 15SecondPitch.com, NY

virguleI’m finding that networking events, such as Biba4Network, that are small and focused on making a quality connection with others work much better for me. It is easier to share information and to make working friendships, which is what it’s all about.”
Margaret T. Wright, Wright Marketing Blueprint, Marketing Consultant, NY

virguleBiba, I really enjoyed your event the other night. I met some very nice, knowledgeable people who provide valuable services. Thank you for creating a comfortable, intimate environment in which to exchange ideas and information about our professions. I felt the experience was very positive and I am already forming new relationships. I wish you continued success and I look forward to attending more of your events in the future.

The two Biba4Network events I attended were held in comfortable, relaxed environments — perfect for holding meaningful conversations with other business people. But, what’s really great about Biba Pedron’s events is that she personally makes sure that I get to know others. I feel that she has a genuine interest in helping me succeed professionally.
Rebecca St Martin, Omni Station, MN

virguleBibaNetwork is a great networking venue for any business owners who are looking to network and grow their business. Your networking events bring people together in unique friendly places such as art galleries, French cafés and various restaurants… a great way to meet people in a non-office environment.

virguleThank YOU for putting together a very nice event as usual. I like the small size and I always seem to meet great people. I like your mission for this group and wish you much success.
Again, thank you for last night. I met so many quality people.

virguleThe networking event was very enjoyable, and I’ve met some very interesting people in which I am sure I will be meeting with in the near future.
Brenda Alderman, BA Computer Consulting Services, Brooklyn,NY

virguleIt was great meeting you as well. I found most of the people I was able to speak to very dedicated and serious about theirs goals.
I have been passing the word around re: how great your networking event was and the great people I met. I’m looking forward to the next meeting.
Elizabeth Irigoyen, eidesign, NY

virguleI want to commend you on your networking events. You have created a unique way to do business. As an entrepreneur since 1994, I have participated in many networking groups over the years. The Biba4Network approach to connecting business people is the most enjoyable and effective method I have experienced. You are providing a much-needed environment for interactions between people.

You are providing an opportunity an opportunity for varied business and creative people to meet each other, gain exposure and form alliances. Since giving a presentation at one of your events, I look forward to further collaboration with you, specifically the combination networking ans sales training evening we are currently developing.

Diane Ragsdale, President, Paradox Productions, Inc,NY


virguleI am a psychologist, working both for the Fire Department of New York City and in private practice. My practice is small, and I am trying to build it. I attended two of your events. Your welcoming and engaging manner made me feel comfortable and at ease in presenting myself among other professionals who are trying to form and build a business. My first event was the brunch where you encouraged us to each speak to the group, presenting our business and telling about ourselves. The smaller, more intimate group enabled us to make connections with each other, both for business and for friendship. My second event was the Monthly Networking, with a larger group of people, affording us to mingle and present ourselves in an atmosphere that was again, made very approachable by you.

It is often difficult to seek out others to make appropriate contacts to obtain new referrals and resources. In the relaxed, but professional, atmosphere in which you create, I feel comfortable discussing with others the aspirations I have for my business. Biba you have the ability to make the event stylish, chic, and fun choosing interesting and contemporary venues, and inviting similarly interesting guests.
Sincerely,
Joanne O’Connor, Ph, D, NY
