From Your Executive Director

In the fast-paced world of our industry, this is no time to ease off the throttle. As the leaves change and the weather cools, business heats up, making this time of year notorious for its hectic pace. It's a sprint towards the finish line of the holiday season, and if you still have fuel left in the tank, now is the perfect moment to kick it into high gear. It's the ideal time to reconnect with existing clients, reignite those relationships, and even reach out to clients who may have ‘ghosted’ you in the past. So, buckle up and prepare for the hustle – don't miss out on the opportunity to connect with your clients and build relationships that will last beyond the holiday season. Get out there and make it happen!

After the Halloween festivities are over, get ready to hit the coming month head on. Below you may find valuable tips on rekindling connections, maintaining perseverance in your client outreach efforts, and staying steadfast in pursuing your personal or professional goals. You'll also se we have spotlighted various resources and/or events available to you. Keep reading to learn more!

Picture This


In the bustling world of business communications, unanswered calls and ignored emails are all too common. However, sometimes a simple, unexpected gesture can change the course of a professional relationship. 

Consider giving something sweet this season, like a custom and delicious DIY brownie gift like this one. Or maybe a foodie gift isn’t their speed and they’d prefer something to feed their tech genius like Skullcandy Bluetooth Headphones. Whatever it is, it’ll be with your client and their preferences in mind! The power of an unexpected holiday gift boosts your business connection into a thriving partnership, shows them your consideration, promotes relationship-building, and pushes persistence in the world of professional networking. Explore our supplier holiday collections below for more ideas like this!



Many PG supplier members have developed at-a-glance holiday gift guides or look books. Click here to see these all in one place.
