Our plenary sessions are meant for senior decision makers and are highly effective for both networking and learning. We want the participants at our sessions to cultivate powerful alliances among those they meet as well as garner insights on how to be more successful at their business.

We meet once every month over a dinner. Our dinners are open to entrepreneurs and C suite executives and provide them with an ideal forum to build business relationships and exchange leads.


Our roundtables offer ideal platforms for peer consultation, experiential learning, and one-on-one mentoring. Roundtables comprise regular members and have closed door meetings chaired by one of the directors of La-Connexion. A roundtable is for entrepreneurs and not for sales people and is focused on industries with overlapping characteristics and concerns. The roundtable members share insights, problems, and industry information, and seek help in a trusting and professional setting.
