2013 Networking Star

CBC Magazine’s CCA Winner

I’m really excited to announce that I have won Networking Star Award at the 6th annual CBC Magazine Connector’s Choice Awards. I was honored to just be in a short list with friends Vincent Iannaggi (L’Nique Specialty Linen Rental) and Amy Van Duyne (Neil Leeson Decor Floral) as well as Jennifer Chernisky (Jennasis and Associates) and Sonya L. Weiland (WeilandWorks Consulting).


You can read CBC Magazine’s summaries on the winners here.

The press release on the winners is available here to read.

An excerpt from  the press release includes a highlight of my 2012 year:

Individual honors went to magician Rick Smith Jr. (Corporate Entertainer of the Year), Rock the House Entertainment’s Nick Borelli (Networking Star of the Year).

“(Last year) was important to be because I joined the SEARCH Foundation board of directors and am using my networking skills to help event professionals in need,” Borelli said. “The event industry has been my teacher, friend, and family, and I just want to do my part to give back.”

Thanks to everyone who voted for me to get me into the final round. I’m really honored the judges found my networking efforts in 2012 to be “star”-worthy! Like I said on stage, I have to give credit to Rock The House for making networking a priority and ISES Cleveland for giving me a platform to meet people each month. If you want to network with me, the best way is on Twitter. Follow me at @NickTheHouse and send me a message.
