Just wanted to take a second from my busy day to let you know how impressive the logistics of your event were yesterday.  So many things we attend are disorganized and chaotic and I commend you and your great staff on having all the T's crossed and the I's dotted to make exhibiting a very smooth and seamless process.  Everyone seemed to feel it was a great show.

Best Regards,
Melinda Stone, Welcome Express

Wow, I just want to thank you for allowing me to be part of such a successful event. The Expo you coordinated was so well organized and incredible fun!  I enjoyed connecting with so many different people and learning about their businesses. Thanks again for including me and I can't wait for the next one!!!

Dhonnizella Perfetti

RBN always fills the room. Neighborhood Car Care made some solid business connections at the Expo. There is an energy about an RBN event. It is a great opportunity, you have to make the commitment to be creative to stand out!


Thank you Yousef & Judy!!  The RBN Event was FANTASTIC!!  See you soon!!

Monica / Fresca’s Mexican Grill

I’m really glad I participated in the Expo!! Met lots of new contacts and the networking was great. The amount of people in attendance far exceeded my expectations. Great job! Thanks.  

Suzanne Johns, REO/Distressed Assets Expert

The 2010 RBN Business Expo was great. The traffic was wonderful. The food was great. Everything was organized and ran smoothly.
Thanks for all you and your staffs hard work.

Donald Thomsen

It was good participating in your expo. Thank you for such a wonderful event.
I received a lot of great leads and several people said they were going to join the NEW and REVISED Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce and or will be attending our next mixer 8/18. Your events have generated many happy members for us.

I am looking forward to your next event.
Dave Harrod, Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce

The RBN Business Expo was very well planned, executed and attended. We had fun, ate really good food and made some great contacts. Traditional advertising media does not work for our company anymore, and I believe networking and relationship building through opportunities like the RBN Business Expo is the best way to gain new customers and make great business contacts. The best way to gain new customers is to meet them face to face, and RBN allows us to do just that. The Expo was a True Success!

Ryan Smith
Marketing Manager, Alandale Insurance Agency

I had a great time and net some great contacts. I was surprised the lower floor elevator worked well and convenient. One customer mentioned if the OC fair would not have had free admission the same night as the major expo….we could have expected an additional 10% more traffic. Keep up the great expo events!

Brian, Great coffee 4U.

Dear Yousef and Judy!

Last night was a wonderful event!  Have to say it was WELL WORTH exhibiting and the best ever Expo I’ve attended!  As always, you did a great job and were well organized! (Thanks for the Expo signs in the garage!)  The venue was fabulous especially because of the accessibility!  Kudos for a job well done!

Diane Kaplan
Independent Associate, Small Business and Group Certified

The event was amazing! Great turnout in both vendors and attendees.  We benefited through establishing some great new contacts, networking with existing contacts and brand awareness for AristoCare!  Thank you for establishing a superior networking group that cares about one another. We feel honored to be part of the group.

Dana Rambow, President / CEO
AristoCare Home Health Care Services

This was a much more fun, interesting, convenient, and successful event for us than the giant OC Fairgrounds Expo last year!  Let's do it again next month!

Carlos Schott, Storage West Irvine

You did your usual great job of pulling together yet another of the best EXPOs in Orange County. Because of your flexibility and quick thinking, you made my experience better than the last EXPO, and that one was really good.

Michael McGuire, Real Photography

Thank you for inviting me letting me  joined in this Major Expo Event 2010, It was a wonderful event, It was really fun networking and we enjoyed it. It was an overwhelming and successful event.
Congratulations !

Corazon Exotic, Skin Care Products

Congratulations on another successful Expo.  We had lots of good contacts and inquiries, as well as enjoying the energy and crowd.

Bobbie, Orange County Credit Union

RBN can pull off an event with 1500 people like it was a piece of cake.  You truly are the BEST Networking folks in Orange County! 
I got so many leads again, that I will be busy forever.  The food was excellent and I just love that Pastry Chef, he always does a great job and I plan on using him soon!
Again, thanks for being in this business!

Big Red

The Expo was a great success! There were so many people there and we had so much traffic to our table. I got so many leads. Everything was very organized, you all did a great job!
Fran Howe

We also have received the following comment from one of our members:

The differences between RBN and other networking organizations include:

  1. The level of professionalism of the members
  2. The support of the organization's management
  3. The organization/design of the meetings
  4. The one-time membership fee
  5. The Free Expo table with membership purchase
  6. The bottom line results in increased sales and income

I don't work for RBN. I am just a member.  These are the reasons why I enrolled in RBN and I have not enrolled with other networking organizations.

If you need to select just one networking organization, I recommend highly RBN.  If possible, I also recommend you enroll now and receive the free expo table in June.

Mr. Michael L Cannon
Cannon e Institute

I was very impressed with you and your event.  My afternoon exceeded my expectations as a non-member and first time guest.  Moreover, when you took the time to speak with me after the show, I found you very personable and genuine. So thank you for RBN, and sharing the passion you have to help others businesses connect:-)  Have a delightful weekend, and will see you soon.  Have registered for membership and will be participating in February's event as a vendor. 

Carmen J. Day,  "The Lady Sporting the DaVinci Smile"
DiVinci Teeth Whitening Local Distributor

This was my first time on the yacht mixer, and it was fantastic! As I was roaming around, the words that were circulating were: "RBN can really throw a good mixer!".
It is such a pleasure to know you and Judy. Your hospitality, even at our weekly meetings, together with your passion to help businesses succeed are what sets RBN apart from other networking groups. I am delighted to be part of RBN----thank you!
Again, congratulations on an outstanding event. Now onward and upward!!

With gratitude,
Pamela Nassief Sanbar

Our experience at the RBN Expo at Joe’s garage was fantastic from beginning to end.  Mr. Shafiee, and his team,  were  a fantastic asset from registering, assistance with our booth, and providing additional opportunities for exposure. This Expo was a valuable investment that has paid off with numerous sales leads and valuable networking contacts.  We look forward to being a part of the next RBN Major Expo.

Francisco Navarro, Business Development
ITIQ Solutions, Your Total IT Solution Provider.

We absolutely loved the Expo, loved it, loved it!  We were impressed with the number of attendees and the quality of the displays and the variety of businesses.  I invited my best friend and when she arrived, she said "Wow, I had no idea this would be such a huge event!"  The leads we received and the connections we made were invaluable!  Images In Motion will definitely exhibit at the RBN expo at Joe's Garage on July 31st, just show me where to sign! 

Cindy Rouze, President
Images in Motion

As a new RBN member given the opportunity to exhibit for the first time at the Joe's Garage Major Expo, I had no idea of exactly what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the thought and organization put into the preplanning and execution of the entire event. My assistant and I had a great time meeting and talking to so many people. The level of support we got from our fellow RBN members was phenomenal. There was such a spirited, high energy, yet professional ambiance evident throughout the evening. I would recommend to anyone who wants to have not only more exposure for their company but who also wants to experience a fun and productive evening to visit and exhibit at the next expo. They will not regret it!
Thanks again Yousef and RBN for a worthwhile evening!

Sherri Durbin, Owner
Consider It Done!

I enjoyed my first event as a new RBN member yesterday and can see why so many have said wonderful things about your organization.  I immediately felt at home and welcomed.  You should be proud of the work you have done to form a group with integrity that has such quality avenues to help businesses enhance their road to success. 

Erin Baldwin , CEO
The Baldwin Companies

“I had attended a few RBN functions as a guest with a previous employer of mine a couple of years ago and the impression that RBN left on me was phenomenal.  I then was relocated to the Inland Empire shortly after I had attended the RBN networking functions.  I wanted to attend something similar, and searched, but found nothing.  Every group I visited was no where near what I had experienced with RBN.  I yearned for a group who would not only connect businesses with each other, but also hold mini-seminars with guest speakers, and do it on the same day, same time, but different locations, so that the business professional would be exposed to a variety of people, rather than the same people and same topic every time.  RBN does it different than everyone else, and it works.  It keeps people interested in attending, and makes networking fun.  When I was offered a position as Vice President and Premier Banking Manager at MetroPacific Bank, here in Irvine, I was excited that I’d be able to join RBN again.  On my first day here at MetroPacific Bank, I signed up for RBN, and I have enjoyed the benefits ever since.  Thank you for creating such a unique group!”

Rebecca Svensson

"Your recent RBN kick-off event at Dave & Buster's of Arcadia was a truly great networking event! This was my first time attending an RBN event and, as an avid networker, I can say that the structure, level of face to face networking, and overall energy of the event was nothing like I've ever seen. I more than doubled my typical number of meaningful, one on one interactions. You have created something really special and I'm pleased that it's now available in the L.A. area. Here's to a speedy expansion! Thanks."

CEW - Glendale, CA

I just wanted to thank you for structuring your networking organization so that people can give away gifts on stage. As a result of giving away a free financial plan, I got a great new client that resulted in $25,000 for my services!
This new client has also become a great new friend of mine, too.
Thanks, again and I look forward to contributing to your organization.

Warm regards,
Dianne Crimble, Financial Planner
Waddell & Reed

I am immensely grateful to you for the contributions you have made to all our success. I am happy to convey to you that I have been approached by some very big players at RBN. All thanks to you. Someday all of us who have made successes of our risks taken will want to contribute to your organization in any way we can. I always tell people about your mission and organization.
Thank you so much

My company, Easy Ink And Toner, has been a member of RBN for several months. I met Carl Heffler at a local chamber of commerce networking luncheon and he spoke so proudly of RBN that I just had to check it out for myself. Of all the groups I have attended, RBN really stands out. Every event is run so professionally. Also everyone is very open, friendly and up beat. The networking session's key theme is to meet people, build lasting relationships that lead to business and have fun doing it. Thank you Yousef, for building your dream, itís working for us.

This is Joe Zayas, just writing to say hello. I have relocated to Florida and am in the process of establishing a presence in this area. Hopefully I will find a networking environment that will afford me the opportunity to grow my business in South Florida although I'm not expecting to find anything close to what you have accomplished with RBN.

Regards, Joe Zayas

Hello Yousef,
It was our pleasure to have the opportunity to share the RBN Business Expo with you. You are a very gracious man. Carl and your entire team were very cordial and diligent to work with. Thank You for choosing Beach Cities Entertainment as your provider of appropriate services. Lots of great folks and wonderful contacts were made during the Expo. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with RBN. As our schedule permits we will look forward to enhancing our relationship.
Again, you and your staff did a fabulous job of putting together a very challenging afternoon. BCE was very proud to be part of RBN Business Expo. We look forward to speaking with you in the near future.

Hi Yousef,

The event in Laguna Hills was phenomenal. I really enjoyed myself. The best part was actually walking through there and being recognized by others from the meetings. I really had fun chatting and getting to know everyone. There was one person who approached me. She was at the meeting at the Hyatt. She asked if I had made any business contacts at RBN and I assured her that it was one of if not the best networking groups I belong to. I believe I talked her into joining. I hope so. Your organization is the best so far. Keep up the good work!


Thank you so much Yousef for the Expo! Everyone was talking about how wonderful it was at the South County Chamber Meeting today. We also received a lot of credibility from the RBN brochure. Thank you for the opportunity to design that for you. Everyone had a fabulous time at the event on Tuesday. RBN is the most fun networking group out there!

Hi Yousef:

Thanks for putting this Expo together -- it was a really impressive event. It was obvious a lot of effort was put into organizing the event. We really enjoyed exhibiting at our first RBN Expo and feel we made a good start on developing some good business contacts.
Thank you, Yousef. Again, I will have great new clients because of your Expo!

Tim Dunivin

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to be a part of such a tremendously warm and profitable group! I had a wonderful time during our last luncheon together and look forward to many more. I was very impressed with the way RBN composes itself as well as the quality of the businesses it represents. I feel that it is a real honor to be among such a wonderful group of people.
I look forward to our next meeting!
Many thanks!

Denise Latta

Dear Yousef,
First off, I want to thank you for orchestrating such a dynamic, professional, and productive organization. You are doing something that not many people do, and you are doing it well. You have brought your vision to the marketplace and you have benefited hundreds of companies and individuals in the process. Through RBN, we have gained access to the caliber of clientele we so often seek--some of whom are our best customers and who are actively building their businesses together with us. We appreciate you for making this opportunity so simple for us. We simply show up for breakfast or lunch and introduce ourselves and our vision to other like-minded professionals. Conducting business in this setting, success is imminent.

Much Success,

Mark G. Cole

RBN has the greatest speakers at the monthly luncheons. Where else can you get a great lecture to help you grow your business, meet great people to network with and have lunch all in a few hours for a terrific price.

Cheryl Coleman ViewPoint Laser Center.

My business is built by meeting people face-to-face. I consider networking essential to the growth of my business. I have met hundreds of people at the RBN luncheons and business Expos. These contacts have been the source of 30% of my new business over the past three years. Thus I consider RBN a vital part of my business. Thank you Yousef!!!
