How has the GPBC helped current members?

“Since joining the group a few years ago, our sales have increased by 100% and the Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection plays an important role in that growth. It is a group of great people who are truly motivated to helping others. I am proud to be a part of a group that cares.” – Nick Brucker, Sparq Designs

“For almost 25 years, I have been a member of the Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection. In addition to patronizing different services from our members during this time, I have reached out for these members’ advice and consulted with them for different projects/tasks for my business. Trust, integrity, and value are the top three reasons why GPBC is vital to my business. I am hard-pressed to name a local networking group with the kind of history, knowledge, and class of membership that GPBC has to offer!” – Javid Shojaie, Jaden’s Catering

“The Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection is like a family to me.  Do I get business?  Yes!  And I also have a group of trusted professionals for personal use or to refer my friends and family to. Absolutely invaluable.” – Diane Dean, Epiphany!

“The Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection is a very professional and well-organized networking group! With 65 members strong I’m not the only one with these thoughts. Way to Go GPBC!” – Trent Griffith, Talk N’ Tables

“Signs of Excellence, Inc. joined Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection in September 2015. I was informed soon after I joined that based on the results that previous members in my category had achieved, I could expect to see a modest increase in sales.

That turned out to be an understatement. In less than six months, referrals from this group resulted in sales of over $20,000. At the same time, Signs of Excellence has purchased products and services from many of the group members at below market prices. And I have formed many friendships along the way.

With nearly 60 business categories represented in the group, just about every business product or service that I need is there; and it’s great to do business with people you know and trust.
The meetings are interesting, very helpful, fun and professional. I highly recommend GPBC.” –  Ken Kelsey


“I told Bob Watt last week at our meeting there was a small problem with our generator. I told him no hurry, no emergency, take your time. Bob called me that evening to schedule a technician to take care of the problem the next morning. His concern and personal attention was exceptional. That’s what you experience in GPBC. Thanks again, Bob!” – Carol Mock, Johnny Mock’s Autobody for R.C. Watt

“Last week was my week to have my husband change the fire alarm monitor batteries from SSA Security. We gathered batteries and found there were some special batteries required. I had to notify the service center to put us on a hold pattern while we changed the fire alarms and it should take a few hours. The lady I spoke to at the service center was extremely friendly, easy to talk to and very accommodating in our need for some extra time. It was like talking to a family member. Three cheers for SSA lady and Brice Beaver.” – Carol Mock, Johnny Mock’s Autobody for SSA Security

“I wanted to give a written testimonial to Sharon Battle of Sharon Battle Travel, who helped my husband and I plan our honeymoon. After analyzing our wants, needs, and interests, Sharon recommended a guided tour through Gate1 Travel. The trip completely exceeded our expectations. The tour was exactly what we were looking for; Not only was it well planned, but we didn’t have to worry about a single thing. The transportation, meals, hotels, and tours were all planned and ready upon arrival. It was the most carefree vacation I have ever been on. The pricing was competitive and the service was second to none. We are so thankful that we went through Sharon Battle Travel!” – Melinda Lieb McNamara, Avenue to Close for Sharon Battle Travel
