Kiko, Jr., CEO/Broker of KIKO Company. Dick focused on the similarities between success in life and success in business. 

    Later in the evening, Jean Gianfagna of Gianfagna Strategic Marketing, Inc. and Bob Sullivan of InfoGrow shared the spotlight for the dinner presentation. Their message, titled "Marketing Best Practices: How to Use Your CRM System to Grow Sales," was all about CRM systems and how to use them for maximum business value.
