[Through IHRIM] I found that I am making friends. I made great connections from the career standpoint. I got jobs through the process in talking to people. And actually, as I grew my business and opened up my own consulting business, I ended up with clients coming through IHRIM. So I have to say that it's been at the heart and soul of my career.

One of Many Time-saving Member Benefits: IHRIM's Partnership with The Influence Board (TIB)

Time is money, and one immediate benefit of joining IHRIM can be found in our partnership with The Influence Board (TIB). The Influence Board is an online platform where decision-makers can restore time to their calendars and cut down spam-mailed sales pitches while supporting IHRIM and preferred nonprofits of interest.

The IHRIM member simply completes a profile with desired services or products, offering up to 1 hour of their time for a one-on-one exploratory discussion for a specified and targeted donation. The supplier simply proposes a meeting and upon remittance a meeting with the decision-maker follows from the TIB platform.  Decision-makers can accept all, some, or none of the proposed appointments.

Few platforms offer as extensive a set of benefits for everyone as TIB - decreasing unsolicited emails while increasing the social impact of your time. Once you’ve created your profile, forward your unsolicited vendor emails to [email protected] and manage all requests for meetings.

For our vendor community members, it facilitates meetings with otherwise hard-to-reach executives without the awkwardness of cold-calling.
