Delray Business Partners Leads Group Celebrates 20th Anniversary

DELRAY BEACH, Florida—For nine decades, the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce has served as the hub of local businesses where stakeholders intersect with a variety of interests. One of the more specialized forms of networking are a series of Leads Groups. These unique groups provide additional opportunities for members who are interested in a smaller, more focused, structured, and frequent form of networking based on referring businesses. 

Leads Groups are entities within the Chamber comprised of local business people who share a simple belief—that they can be more successful together than on their own. Through leads, referrals, opportunities, sharing of best practices and encouraging each other through common experiences, each group builds a network of trust and confidence that helps its members thrive. 

One Chamber Leads Group—The Delray Business Partners (DBP)—has just celebrated its 20th Anniversary. 

According to Jan Kinder, Owner of the Jan Kinder Center and Chair of the group, “I’m honored to be the Chair of the Delray Business Partners since 2019 and a member since 2016. I’m grateful to my Steering Committee and the DBP members for the continued success of this passionate group of remarkable colleagues who are also caring and enthusiastic friends. We are 35 members strong.”

“Chamber leads groups allow members to develop strong relationships with their counterparts in a variety of other businesses,” states Shaun Telford, President of Telford Cooling and a member of the DBP for 16 years. “The friendship, trust, and support that is cultivated among its members lends to business and personal growth for all involved.” 

Harolyn Scott, Owner of Palm Beach Legal Nurse Consultants and a DBP member states, “I am happy to be a part of the Delray Business Partners, which has challenged me to grow as a business owner and as a person. I look forward to continuing to connect with and collaborate with my group mates. So far, so good!”
