I attended this business meeting in Doral, Florida, this Thursday morning.
The gathering was held in partnership with the Doral Chamber of Commerce, led by businessman Manny Sarmiento.
Sarmiento, President/CEO of the Chamber of Doral, introduced Mayor Bermudez, who told the audience “business is a key component of Doral’s community.”
Mayor Bermudez told me, in a short conversation after his presentation, “Doral is in competition with South East Broward (Miramar) and South West Dade (Coral) Gables to attract business.”
But Doral ‘s competitive advantage resides in its diversed descent Hispanic cultural background with a lot of hungry for opportunity newcomers from Venezuela, and Cuban descents, and other nationals.
“HA’s should get more involved to raise their concerns and participate in their vision and fabric of the community,” the mayor said.
I had the opportunity to network with some entrepreneurs and business managers.
“Doral is booming,” Manny Sarmiento and his colleague Carmen Lopez at the Chamber said.
“We have real people ready to meet you, and to make it easier for you to succeed. Your individual success will grow Doral as a great success,” they said mentioning the Chamber was founded in 2008 to provide education’s tool for business.
The Chamber holds regular training session on social media, email marketing, negotiation.
Manny told me the Chamber will initiate some soft-skills, personal, and professional development series.
And as a speaker and leadership coach myself, I am excited to have shared some contents and areas of cooperation with several other entrepreneurs and the Chamber’s leaders to help Doral’s business community and members to live the life they’ve always wanted.
