"You Have to Circulate to Percolate"
Who do you want to meet? Who wants to meet you? Do you want to grow your business? Do you want help starting a business? Do you want a new position or career? Do you want to expand your network of professional connections? If so, you've come to the right networking group.
These 'Coffee Connector' MeetUps are the warm water, shallow end of the networking pool. We are friendly, welcoming, and committed to helping you connect with the people you need to connect with to accomplish your objectives. Our members are a diverse group of professionals, with vast experience, and are willing to share ideas, insights, strategies, and tactics to help you grow professionally.
Our Coffee Connector MeetUps are now focused on the process of Networking, and learning about successful networking strategies. At each of these MeetUps, we'll discuss one of the 52 Networking Strategies from the book: The 29% Solution, by Dr. Ivan Misner. The basic idea is to make these MeetUps challenging, educational, and designed to help you become better at the art of networking.
If you're new to networking, these MeetUps are a great place to start. If you're a veteran networker, you realize the value of making new connections and deepening existing connections. We have over 400 members with their own network of 250 people or more. This means when you plug-in to this networking group, you are just one introduction away from almost 100,000 people.
These Connect @ Coffee MeetUps are the most easy, informal, friendly way to meet new people who want to help YOU.
These sessions organically develop professional "MatchMaking" opportunities. We will not expose our networks to those who simply want to SELL something. We will strategically work to make connections between our networking connections, and the connections in our network.
Join us, be who you are, and make new connections. Unlike many networking groups there is no pressure, expressed or implied, to bring "leads" to our MeetUps.
The purpose of MeetUp is to actually MeetUp. The purpose of the Ann Arbor Connectors Club is to connect YOU to the people and resources YOU need to reach YOUR professional goals. Get away from the keyboard, out of your comfort zone, meet some great new people. You never know where new relationships will lead. These MeetUps are intended to SUPERCHARGE your professional networking efforts. Come check us out, you'll be glad you did. ALL ARE WELCOME!
