Response to meeting opportunities is required, including declining a meeting opportunity - clarity of process is key in Visionary’s arranged meeting network. Participation in arranged meetings, transactions, and referrals of others that are approved as Members are also accounted for.


  •  Notifications of relevant meeting opportunities

  •  Complementary and discount access to leading events, products, and services
  •  Business Development as a Service (BDaaS) on-demand Supported Access to relationships sought

Business Development as a Service (BDaas)

Visionary’s BDaaS is designed to add a team of 4+ (Engagement Manager, Expert Advisory Partner, Meeting Arranger, Researcher) to your team to deliver more channel strategy, more Qualified Arranged Meetings, more guaranteed results, with less time required, compared to an equivalent business development hire. For 6 month engagements Visionary not only guarantees a pipeline of 10-20 Qualified Arranged Meetings supported to success, but further an ROI objective. If the ROI objective is achieved Visionary is patient to simply continue to grow in a continued engagement. If more time is needed to support the pipeline, Visionary credits an additional 6 months of support. No fear of downside - we are committed to our role, and seeking Members that can close on the significant pipelines generated from the Visionary Network.


Relationship Capital Management

An entrepreneur, investor, and executive’s value is increasingly dependent on their network of relationships. However, in an age of too much to do and not enough time, relationship capital is 1) poorly maintained with many relationships not being data-based, 2) relationship data not sorted by strategic identifiers, and 3) not being leveraged to get one’s network working for them.


Visionary compiles all contacts (address book, linkedin, business cards etc.) adds meta data and delivers a spreadsheet or CRM solution. Visionary offers the ability to bring value and monetize one's relationships via our Referral Exchange, and enables systematic interaction with one evolving relationships via our powered by Visionary Meeting Arrangers - an enhanced executives assistant at a fraction of the cost.


A la Carte

Visionary offers Approved Members a la carte expert advisory, services and tools to optimally access the Visionary Network. Whether a consulting assignment, pitch deck/video, financial model, or boardroom/webinar presentation Visionary proactively prescribes tools to our Members, and for those that need support in order to secure an Approved Membership.


Featured Opportunity Distribution

Visionary is a network of networks reaching 1,000,000+ ‘top 1%’ of influence/affluence. Meeting Opportunities are programmatically distributed through direct marketing (email/social media message/phone call), with permission granted. Visionary offers multifold ROI that outperforms traditional sponsorship/media spend: impression/click through/lead generation, and with our business development as a service (BDaaS), qualified arranged meetings as an engagement manager qualifies leads/manages pipelines in tandem with the sales team.


How does the Referral Exchange work?

While typical referrals have to be bilateral - you refer me to who I am seeking and I will refer you to who you are seeking - Visionary is quickly emerging to be the world’s leading Referral Exchange & Referral Bank - you refer ANY high caliber individuals into Visionary, and receive QUALIFIED ARRANGED MEETING access with who you are seeking OR credits that can be redeemed for Visionary’s services, donated, or cashed out. Our goal is to continue to grow Visionary to critical mass. Trusted referrals into our network and network value creation is our goal.
