“Working closely together and building relationships are how you can get the most out of your membership.”
This is the advice Robyn Bass, a Cable member since 2016, would give to someone considering joining Cable. “Getting involved with a committee or taking a leadership role is the best way to network and stay active in the organization.” Robyn herself served on the Athena Awards Logistics Committee for Cable and learned that her greatest successes happen when she surrounds herself with likeminded individuals, and Cable has connected her with women who share her values and work ethic.
“Cable is such a well-respected organization, and for me, aligning myself with other professional women – both personally and professionally – has helped me maximize my growth potential.”
When asked about her biggest career setback and how she overcame it, Robyn mentioned that it was when she was helping start a company that failed before starting her current company a few years later. Robyn insists it was the lessons learned from her previous failure that fueled the success of her business. “Professional challenges force conversations that require introspection. What comes as a result of those conversations is always a better way and a better space to be in.”
This lesson motivated Robyn to launch and build a multimillion-dollar company from the ground up in just five years. Her company was recently named as a Top 25 Woman Owned Business in Nashville, and Robyn also just recently had her most career-defining moment when she was awarded the Hosts Global 2017 Leadership Award.
“I’m so proud to be a part of a company that promotes teaching and provides our team with opportunity to grow and thrive within our company and industry through education and certifications. Being proactive is everything I stand for and a direct result of our company’s success.”
Robyn Bass is a Hosts Global member and president/CEO of Maple Ridge Events. Her responsibilities include providing strategic leadership and establishing long-range goals, strategies, plans and policies.
Thank you, Robyn, for your commitment and service to Cable and the community. We appreciate you!
