About Piedmont Business Leaders


Piedmont Business Leaders Meeting

Piedmont Business Leaders is a group of highly motivated business professionals who bring qualified referrals—not leads—to our dedicated members.

Piedmont Business Leaders is a Greensboro Networking Group of 40+ highly motivated professionals. We help bring referrals to dedicated leaders who want to expand their business and network among other local professionals.

PBL was established in 2011 and has now grown to more than 40 members strong. We meet every Wednesday morning at the Weir-Jordan House at 223 North Edgeworth Street, Greensboro NC.

Networking time is available both before and after meetings, and post-meeting connections are encouraged.

Not your ordinary leads group…

PBL is a REFERRAL network with creativity. Play video to learn more:
