NCG, Inc understands that in order to deliver top notch results for our clients, our scope must be much broader than Trumbull, Connecticut. One way this is accomplished is by regularly attending industry events around the country. It is an opportunity for employees and management to learn from other industry professionals, meet with clients, receive recognition from peers, as well as travel and have some fun!
Recently, the NCG, Inc leadership team had the opportunity to be present at an invite-only annual conference in Dallas, Texas. It was an action-packed weekend and it did not disappoint! On Saturday morning, conference attendees met for breakfast to fuel up for the day before joining the General Session hosted by top performers in the industry. The conference attendees were then divided into smaller groups to receive more personalized coaching, given by some of the most respected and knowledgeable business leaders.
After a full day of soaking up knowledge, it was time for cocktail hour! NCG, Inc and the rest of the conference participants were dressed to impress in formal attire, anxiously awaiting the awards dinner and show! This was the perfect time to catch up with colleagues from around the country that may only get together at these types of events –- somewhat of a reunion. The awards dinner and show were the grand finale. Seeing people recognized for all of their accomplishments over the previous year reminds everyone of what the daily grind truly leads to.
The president of NCG, Inc, Jolene Foor, shared her thoughts on the Dallas event: “These events are a great reminder that no matter your background – you, too, can be successful. There’s no secret recipe… you don’t need a business degree or a ton of experience. All you need is a strong work ethic and a positive attitude. It’s also great to see what that success can lead to. To me, the biggest motivator is having the freedom to spend as much time as I want with my family and the financial ability to do so – vacations, picking my future kids up from school and more.”

When NCG, Inc (Trumbull, CT) recognizes one of our top performers, we do it big. Picture this… A corporate ballroom filled with 800+ of your peers. All eyes on the stage. And your name is announced. You walk up (careful not to trip) receiving high fives along the way. You are being recognized for the outstanding leadership that you’ve been exemplifying. This was the case for Laura Amiot at a northeastern industry conference this past April.
NCG, Inc President Jolene Foor selected Laura for this award because she is a great example to others in business. She also explained that Laura does an exceptional job leading and managing a team. This is, in part, due to her ability to communicate effectively; asking questions and focusing on the facts of a situation. Laura is also a go-getter, “I see her taking on new responsibilities before she’s even officially trained on them!” says Jolene.
Laura was born in Whittier, California and raised in Chino, California. She loves the outdoors, especially hiking, camping and fishing. “I grew up SCUBA diving and surfing, so any chance I get to travel and do that I do it,” Laura added. This business savvy, surfing, camping woman is also a mother to a 5 year old little girl. What an amazing example. Some of their favorite things to do together are going to the park and exploring other fun places around the area.
When asked ‘what makes working for NCG, Inc great or different?’ Laura summed it up for us. “I love the opportunity to learn from my coworkers and to help my team succeed. I also love that I am not chained to a desk; being able to go out to visit business owners is something I never thought I would be able to do but, in fact, I love everything about it! I am learning more about myself through this position than I have anywhere else. I have gained an immense amount of confidence and seen how much I can truly accomplish. NCG, Inc is different from previous jobs I’ve had because of the opportunity I have to move up so quickly based on merit.”
Although Laura has had a lot of accomplishments at NCG, Inc already – she’s not slowing down! Her goals are to be able to consult and mentor entrepreneurs around the country to help their businesses thrive. Personally, she sees herself being married and watching her family grow.
