EO Louisiana Announces Strategic Alliance Partnership with Core Strategies
NEW ORLEANS – The Louisiana chapter of the global Entrepreneurs’ Organization is proud to announce Core Strategies as its newest Strategic Alliance Partner. The company joins other long-standing EO Louisiana partners including Baker Donelson, Zehnder Communications, Hancock Whitney, Wegmann Dazet & Company and Gilsbar. According to EO’s website, “The goal of strategic alliances is to create relationships with those key supporters in the Setate of Louisiana by offering privileged access to the organization and all of its members.”
Additional details were shared in a press release.
Vicki Rosetti-Applewhite, owner of Core Strategies, explained that the goals of her company are in direct alignment with the functions of EO, and that this new relationship should serve to mutually benefit both parties.
“The mission of Core Strategies is to help small and medium businesses achieve breakthrough sales growth, discipline and accountability,” she said. “Since EO is made up of entrepreneurs who have achieved success in their own right, I know I will benefit from connections and inspiration to help me to improve my own business practices and grow to levels I had not previously thought possible. I look forward to contributing value to the chapter by introducing my clients to their organization as potential members and partners.”
Mike Krass, Strategic Alliance Partner Chair, said that such partnerships arise when the organization matches with businesses and individuals who uphold EO’s core values. In the case of Core Strategies, Krass said he believes that Applewhite and her company embody the EO value “Thirst for Learning,” which emphasizes the need for entrepreneurs to continue to learn and develop as business owners and individuals.
"Vicki Applewhite provides the leadership business owners need to find their best customers and to build a sales engine at their company,” Krass said. “Once this path is built, Vicki believes that business owners can easily navigate their way to success. Our members are focused on professional and personal development, and Vicki's background is a tremendous complement to our mindset of growth and improvement."
Because of EO Louisiana’s distinction as the world leader in chapter growth, Applewhite said she is eager to join the ranks of “a motivated group of entrepreneurs who are interested in improving on every level.” Since 1987, EO has united business owners at every stage of their careers to encourage peer-to-peer growth, problem solving and mutual support.
