We use the power of video and optimization to increase the visibility and value not only of Chamber representatives but also their investors. Each Chamber representative benefits from a 30 second elevator Wow video, including coaching on what to say and how to say it. Same for chamber members as part of a major benefit joining the chamber. The videos will be in high definition and optimized for search. The Chamber will post them on their site plus individuals can “spread the love” through the power of social media.

Wael-Bob provide this service as proven dedicated Chamber members. Our credentials and reputations are significant. We’re active Chamber members and have spoken at major events.

Chris’ responsibility to ensure a member of his team helps schedule his staff. He’s also responsible for introducing us and what we do to the Chamber member executives, who will benefit from our service as they’re free to use the videos however they wish. As importantly, they will receive help in messaging and delivery from one of the nation’s foremost experts in the field.

Our questions and the answers they elicit will both help the Chamber the members. For example, for Chamber members:

  • What do you value most about the Chamber?
  • What’s been your best experience?
  • Why would you recommend joining the Chamber to others?
  • What’s the most important thing people should know about your company?
  • What are you most proud of in your business?
  • Why do you find doing business in Irving Las Colinas special?
  • What’s the best advice you’ve ever received about running a company?
  • What you value most about living in the Irving Las Colinas area?
  • What you do for fun?

For Chamber staff:
