Grandpa said self praise is a small recommendation, but we’ll take this…

Dear News 12,

My name is Deirdrea Renwick from Gott Management Services in Farmingdale and I am contacting you because I am proud to be a part of one of Long Island's Best Networking Groups ran by David Gussin & Heidi Shaw from and 

I am writing to you in order to invite you to their 5th Anniversary Celebration.
David was featured two times in NEWSDAY already this year. However, their story barely touched the surface of what and has created for the Long Island Business Community. and has a very large business and Non Profit community presence as well as many fans. David’s methods have taken off on Long Island in the last 5 years as he has helped leaders in our community establish many other networking events/ groups. HOW EXCITING that he has created a great resource center of bringing Business to Business together.  Many of us in the business community agree that he has started something unlike anywhere else in the United States as he truly has made a difference for many of Long Island's small and large companies. I can tell you my business has only flourished since meeting this man only a year and a half ago. He truly cares about the business communities and its nonprofits. I am sure if you take the time to read information on him you will have to agree with me. Please come and attend this event and see for yourself. Covering this event, getting business owners to tell you their story about the difference and has made and seeing David in action will be worth it for News 12. 

I thank you for your time and concentration and I hope to see you at this event.
