Testimonials

I've been a member of many different networking groups over the past 20+ years but Collaberex has been the most gratifying and beneficial group I've joined to date. Because the members in my group all sell to similar types of clients, we share similar challenges so the topics are all relevant. The meetings address just the right topics to help propel my business forward, and the other members are all supportive, smart and just plain nice! While I wasn't looking specifically for new business directly, I have brought in new clients as a direct result of my membership in Collaberex, which is a welcome bonus! Collaberex is the perfect mix of advisory board, networking and professional growth training! In addition, Jonathan is one of the best "connectors" of people I've ever known. He has an uncanny knack for knowing just who would be good for you to know. I can honestly say that the benefit of being a Collaberex member has far outshined what I've gotten from all the other groups I've joined combined.

Jonathan has created a unique networking experience that not only provides the opportunity to network and make meaningful business connections, but you also get personal development through his group activities and deep discussions. Jonathan truly cares about his clients and goes above and beyond to help you get connected with the right people. If you’re tired of the traditional networking experience, this is the group for you!

I was introduced to Jonathan about three years ago as a prospective member of Collaberex. He almost immediately removed my skepticism because Collaberex is a 21st century iteration of networking simply because it's more than networking. It's well screened non-competing professionals clustered by target customer which facilitates referrals, enables an exchange of best practices, and encourages peer to peer counseling. All this happens because Jonathan has excellent people skills, because he really works at it, and because he communicates effectively with individuals and with groups. He has a vast and impressive business background; but to me his real gift is including the right people in each group and finding the absolute best members (and occasionally non-members) for each of us to meet.

Financial Planner
I joined the Collaberex group only a few months ago. I have found this to be much different than any other group with which I have been involved. Under Jonathan's leadership, our group intimately knows each other's businesses. We spend time not only learning what each of us does but "why." Very important. Bottom line: I have closed new business by being part of Collaberex!
Dan Casanta

After the laser coaching session last month, I have 2 new lead sponsors committed for next year. Which is unbelievably fast progress for four weeks. I had been procrastinating for best part of a year on whether to do or not do. Thanks to all my Collaberex group members for their advice which will go right to the bottom line!
