Bill Ringle of Sponsors Philadelphia Center City Proprietor Association Soiree

Philadelphia, PA – Bill Ringle, nationally known business growth strategist and the driving force behind, sponsored the 2011 Philadelphia Center City Proprietors Association (CCPA) Annual Soirée, “Make Friends in High Places.” The event offered Philadelphia area business professionals a chance to connect with others in extraordinary networking while enjoying hors d-oeuvres, cheese and charcuterie, spirits, and jazz entertainment by The George Weldon Trio. Ringle also offered a Small Business Development Diagnostic Review, valued at $500, as part of the event’s silent auction.

The CCPA’s mission is to foster communication, cooperation, education and services among the small businesses of Center City Philadelphia and to maintain, promote and improve the commercial vitality of Center City Philadelphia. At, Ringle offers practical advice to grow and improve businesses through unique teleseminars that detail proven strategies and step-by-step action plans that will help take those businesses to the next level. Each month he answers questions from business and sales leaders on a particular growth topic during the call-in program.

“In today’s business environment, we’ve got to stop chasing the gazillionth Facebook contact and focus on what matters in business: adding value so that our clients and customers have a rewarding experience as they do business with us. High level networking events like the CCPA Soirée offer business leaders a chance to meet, connect, and strengthen relationships face to face, and that greatly accelerates communication and trust. We’re pleased and proud to support this event, as well as the work that Ben Frank and his team do all year long to promote business development and knowledge sharing in the Philadelphia community,” said Ringle.

Bill Ringle coaches and mentors business owners and leads seminars nationally on business growth and leadership development topics. He works with high performing entrepreneurs and CEOs who want to overcome the five big challenges to business growth so that they can run profitable and rewarding business rather than become stuck and overwhelmed in unfulfilling and draining roles. He has written more than 340 articles for publication online, in company newsletters, and in print publications around the world; has authored or co-authored four books; and conducts regular interviews with business, thought, and community leaders through the audio magazine My Quest for the Best.
