Member Spotlight: Brian Quinn, Centinel Financial Group LLC
This week we're happy to feature member Brian Quinn of Centinel Financial Group LLC. Centinel Financial Group works with individual and businesses to reach their personal goals and maximize opportunities.
What does "Centinel" mean? Centinel is an American Revolutionary term signifying guarding and protection. That summarizes Centinel Financial Group's philosophy:
Our brand is a direct reflection of our planning philosophy to help our clients accumulate, protect and preserve their lifestyle, assets and loved ones. What this means is that we invest the time to understand the challenges that our clients face in today’s economic environment and design innovative and creative strategies that help our clients reduce or eliminate these challenges and maximize their opportunities. The real benefit is the clarity and confidence our clients feel in regard to their financial security.

Member Spotlight: DMac Voice & Media
Donna Mac, owner of DMac Voice& Media, is a professional broadcaster with over 25 years of experience. Her mission is to craft and communicate messages that have to "first connect with and then hopefully move people."
Not only has Donna been an on air radio personality, but she's created two successful and long running interview programs on both radio and television. She's also been a commercial spokesperson for a variety of products.
Today she still provides these services, but also helps business owners find their own voice. She's instrumental in helping them produce audio or audio/visual programs and products. In addition she educates individuals and organizations to "effectively and clearly communicate thoughts with confidence and ease."
As Donna says:
"Whether you need to deliver your message in person, over video or in a recorded podcast my coaching and mentoring will help you to go from nervous to confident and help make sure your message is clear…not cloudy. And all of it can be done in a very short period of time.
And the lessons you learn will last you for a lifetime."
To hear Donna in person, join us Friday March 8th for The Women's Link from 7:30-9:30am at the Mansfield Music and Arts Society where Donna will be talking about The Fear of Speaking.
The Communication Arts Group is a full service communication studio with 20+ years of experience together. They specialize in branding and identity programs, direct marketing, advertising, website development and search engine optimization.
They describe what they do and how they do it succinctly on their website:
Below the surface of every company is a persona, which reflects its core character, its essence, its truth. This is the company's brand. Brand value is partly what determines how well a company can protect its price position in the marketplace and defend its market share—two things we take very seriously.
So much so, in fact, that we’ve organized our services into three distinct silos to help our clients (and us) unearth your unique company or product brand persona and then convey that uniqueness to customers in meaningful, relevant, and memorable ways. These silos represent our process for building equity in a brand and achieving measurable return on marketing investment.
They have worked with clients such as the 99 Restaurants, Roger Williams Medical Center, Hasbro, Lifespan, and the United Way. To see their full client list, click here.
