PWNCR Meeting May 11, 2019

The PWNCR’s first annual Open House event took place Saturday, May 11. It was received by a lively and engaged crowd. Attendees were popping up out of their seats to share or comment on the presentation — we loved all the interaction with the crowd!
Unfortunately, we hit a glitch getting our recording of the live presentation up onto YouTube. However, Mimi made a webinar-style version of the presentation and you can view that on the event page.

The Buzz May, 2019 24
Rommy was the winner of this month’s door prize: a weekend stay at Casa de las Tias Bed and Breakfast in Escazu! What a prize!!!

Thank you, Pilar Saavedra!

Thank you, Pilar Saavedra, the member who generously donated this awesome door prize! Pilar’s B&B is absolutely precious. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway with your loved one, a visit to Escazu with family, or to recommend for friends visiting Costa Rica. We encourage you to check out Casa de las Tias and keep it in mind the next time you’re looking for a nice place to stay.

Member Exclusives

Up until now, the biggest benefit of paying the 12.000 CRC annual membership fee to the PWNCR was a reduced cover charge for meetings (members pay 1.000 CRC while visitors pay 5.000 CRC). Members understand there are many more benefits — the network it not sustainable without this contribution.
However, this year we wanted to elaborate on the PWNCR’s three primary initiatives and activities. We decided the best way to do this would be to create a digital library of personal and professional development resources available through our website.
Therefore, members will receive far more value from joining the network because they will be able to access these resources on their own, any time of day. Plus, the library (and the value it provides) will grow each month.

Webinars and Online Workshops

Have you ever attended a professional development webinar? There is a reason they are incredibly popular across all fields and professions. PWNCR will present a wide variety of live-streaming webinars and online workshops. Do you have a suggestion for a webinar topic that we could offer? Would you like to present a webinar to our network yourself? Contact us now and tell us about it!

Speaker Presentation Livestreams

In the near future, you will be able to watch the speaker presentation at our monthly meetings from anywhere in the world! If you’re a member, that is… We heard a lot of feedback from our followers who live outside the central valley. They wanted to be members but could rarely make it out to the presentations in San Jose. By live-streaming the presentations, members who can’t make it to the meeting will be able to tune in and watch each month. They’ll even be able to comment on the presentation live!

Presentation Replays

After the day of the meeting, presentations will exist on our website as a replay! Imagine being able to go back and watch some of the amazing presentations of years past. Unfortunately, those presentations only exist in memory but moving forward, our members will have access to a new and growing digital library of past presentations.

The Buzz About the Event

The Results of Our First LIVE POLL (You Can Participate Below)

The results are in: our members are either doing business online, our they want to! Of the attendees at last meeting, 66 percent are currently doing business online in some form while the other 34 percent said they would like to but lack the knowledge/skills.  The vast majority of attendees (73 percent) said they would attend a presentation on social media business building, while 60 percent said they want to learn the DIY way to build sales funnels online.  Around half of the attendees were equally interested in learning Costa Rica’s working laws, creating and offering online courses, and learning how to plan an event.  But we still want to hear from YOU! If you were not among the group that participated in the live pole on Saturday, May 11, you’re welcome to make your voice heard and contribute your votes now. Your choices will directly shape the activities of the PWNCR for the rest of the year.
