I purchased the tickets with money my sister gave me for Christmas and I was just jubilant when I won – I can now travel to England to visit my newly born great nephew!”

Scott Sparks, Proxima Group Thu, 02 Jul 2015 01:16:20 +0000 “The BABA’s were a unique and fun event and unlike other awards events I’ve attended. It was made interesting by the focus on the human side of these businesses – not just the nuts and bolts. The insights shared by the awardees regarding the power of personal passions and the impact they have on leaders and their drive for success was fascinating. It was enlightening to hear something other than strategy, team motivation and the usual business success factors. The caliber of awardees was very impressive – the BABC provides access to top executives not seen at other business groups. The BABA’s are my favorite BABC event so far!”

I really liked the roundtables and I took a lot away with me from the people who shared their business views and experiences.”

At my table was the new Executive Director of Casa Romantica in San Clemente which just so happens to be where I live. I’ve since attended one of her events. Kudo’s Valerie for another great event!”
