After 30 years of being a leader in diversity marketing in Boston, Colette Phillips remains one of the city’s best connectors. Whether building her business or building connections between people and communities, Colette believes her membership in the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce is a key to success. “Business gets done at the Chamber,” says Colette.
Colette’s company, Colette Phillips Communications helps clients enhance their brand awareness, build equity, and, increase their bottom line through diversity marketing and communications, public relations, and inclusion and multicultural marketing.
As a small-business owner, Colette values the Chamber’s role as the leading convener of the business community and its ability to foster lasting connections that contribute to her success. “The Chamber makes it possible for small business owners like me to meet and interact with CEOs of some of the largest companies in the country,” she says. “I make connections with prospects at Chamber events that would not happen anywhere else.”
Known for her ability to connect people in the business and civic communities, Colette understands what makes people click. “People do business with those they know, like, and trust, and the Chamber creates just the right setting where these three important elements come together,” says Colette. “For me, that’s the real selling point of being a member of the Chamber. It’s a real return on my investment.”
