Ideas@Work for Businesses

Terri DeBoo Ideas@Work counsels companies looking to accelerate their immersion and acceptance into the Charlotte Community. Together we develop strategies tailored to their business objectives. Specifically, opportunities are identified to engage individuals and businesses they need to know, meetings are arranged with targeted groups we feel they need to be involved with, and investment dollars are prioritized in the areas of sponsorship and non-profits. Once goals and connections are established, Terri then trains corporate leaders and employees on the strategy as well as how to become part of, and negotiate, the business culture of Charlotte and beyond.


Highly networked, Terri helps you and your company understand the ins and outs of integration and connectivity, and how you can become part of the fabric of the business community. In addition to her social capital, Terri brings to the table successful track records in management, sales, customer service, business development, and public speaking and training. These skills are maximized to deliver top returns on investment. Topics we focus on include:


•  Achieving Market Awareness

•  Becoming Master Networkers

•  Creating Dynamic Salespeople

•  Heightening Customer Service & Deliverables

First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.
