    The Bad

    The goodClub strengthClub TransitionsThis is supposed to symbolize all of us, playing together.

    So what is Synergy: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts

    Were hoping that if we integrate some of our events, that we will have stronger, more impactful, more meaningful events.

    BUILD a stronger network, between clubs, between different MBA programs in Goizueta, by bringing contacts with different ideas of shared experiences together (to borrow words from strategy)

    Ill give you an example of an event last year that had a lot of this synergy in it.

    *In February, Hally Emily and I put together a roundtable event where the goal was to encourage women to talk candidly about being a women in business, and also provide a forum for networking.

    We had women from the executive, evening and weekend MBA program, BBAs, and most importantly the EWG, executive women of Goizueta join and network with each other and have frank discussions about being a women in business.

    We even asked the EWG to share a piece of advice with the rest of us, and we heard things like pull your big girl pants up.

    To this end, we got the wine club involved, because what helps networking more than wine? And we worked closely with the Mentor Program, who not only got our message about the event out to a lot of the right people, but also contributed to the funds. We got the EWG involved, so that they had a ownership and stake in the event, to make sure that they would come and that they had a stake in its success.

    We pooled money from GWIB, the mentor program, the wine club and EWG.

    So, for an event that was originally budgeted for GWIB only at 300, we had an event that cost nearly $2000. And we had 60 participants that desperately want to do the event again next year.

    Without the other clubs/programs involvement, we wouldnt have had enough money to pull this off, for one thing, and for another, we had better ideas on how to do it and how to serve everyones needs.

    So this is an example of the types of events wed like to do more of. Some ideas for other synergy across clubs are.

    *Were NOT saying use every club. Own your niche, use each other strategically, where it makes sense)

    Were hoping that you all can brainstorm about this during the break and come up with more ideas *We want to be not only pool resources from all of our clubs together, but we want to pull them from other MBA programs.

    More people showing up to events

    Biulding stronger relationships

    Bigger resource pool

    *i.e. there are other Womens Clubs, Net Impacts, Sports Clubs at other schools we should join forces*The benefits of this are.

    One of the big barriers to this is communication *Figure out who the right people are to talk to who is the leadership, who even has access to their conferences

    Another barrier to getting the word out, is MBA 09 and the Master Calendar*We need your thoughts*
