Designed to encourage entrepreneurs, business owners and business professionals to BE A GO GIVER, LEADS EXCHANGE is the weekly opportunity for members to give a 60 second elevator pitch about their business and their perfect client, being clear about what they are looking for in an ideal client so that others can genuinely help and refer business to them. As a GO GIVER, members should come not only looking to receive referrals, but should look to add value and work to give genuine referrals to others as well. The understanding is that members will make a commitment to be consistent in their efforts to pass quality referrals, make introductions when necessary and be above board on all business matters, because when the group succeeds, we all succeed. LEADS EXCHANGE meetings are primarily for Nashville Black Chamber members. Non-members of the Chamber, may attend, as a guest, three times, at no cost. After a third visit, non-members must pay a fee of $10 per meeting until they become a member of the Chamber
