    Let's grow globally from Nashville!

    'Warm connecting' is a focused, effective way of 'networking' advocated and practiced by Global Chamber®.

    We encourage Nashville metro companies to get connected through our warm connections - across town, across Tennessee, around the US and around the world.

    There are many ways to network. For many of our members, 'warm connecting' is the best because there is some thought about your business goals before making a warm introduction - and the person who is introduced is known and will very likely be interested to meet you. People are too busy these days to take meetings with people they don't know UNLESS the intro is from someone they know AND there appears to be something in it for them, as well.

    Read more about 12 tips on warm connecting HERE. And join us to grow your business in warm and wonderful ways.

    Our team knows Nashville AND the world... reach out and find out more how we can help you and your company grow more effectively.

    Let's grow globally more effectively in the coming year!
