-“Hi Paula! It’s been a long time since we spoke and I thought I’d reach out to let you know some news. So after an interesting 18 months at [my new company], I’ve decided to leave. Not because I didn’t like working there but because…. I’ve been offered an amazing opportunity. Starting in September, I’ll be Chief Communications Officer at a European chemical company. I think it’s thanks for your coaching and advice that I had the confidence to take this opportunity when it arose. If you remember that was one of my issues that I would let opportunities to pass me by. Thanks again for everything you did for me back in 2020 – it’s really transformed my career! I hope everything is going well for you!” T.

7. Jerry Fronczak- “I thought perhaps the note below from my client, T. may be of interest in the Happy Wednesday Frontline Report. It demonstrates the reach of TBG and the power of networking. In summary, T. is interested in [a clean energy company] as he wants to transition into a career that is environmentally conscious. From identifying [a clean energy company] as a potential employer, I found that Barbara Limmer is connected to an executive there. She was kind enough to reach out and secure an introduction. The rest is explained in the note below. Thanks, Jerry

‘Barbara, I wanted to let you and @Jerry Fronczak know that I spoke with [the executive at the clean energy company] today. It was a great conversation and [the executive] had good information on the renewable industry and opportunities at the company. He’s referring me to their Asset Management VP because he believes there may be a role in that organization for me. He also gave me some other similar/competitor companies to research. Thank you so much for arranging the introduction! Regards, T.’ ”
