This Group is the most UNIQUE Business Networking Meetup in Southern California because it actually COMPLIMENTS (and doesn’t compete with) all the other Business Networking Meetups.
WHY WE STARTED THIS GROUP:
All the other business-oriented Meetups are excellent at what they do…provide a “platform” as well as a scheduled date, time, and place for people to network. However, WITHOUT the right tools, tactics, techniques, & strategies (on Business Networking/Word-of-Mouth Marketing)…most people might NOT get the Return on Investment (ROI) they expect from their time.
In other words, they might not make the QUALITY connections they expect.
Worse yet…some people attending other Meetups might actually beWASTING THEIR TIMEif they don’t approach these events with the appropriateNETWORKING MINDSET.
We’re poised to teach our attendees the skills to make their networkingMORE EFFECTIVE.
There will be Rotating Topics and Rotating Speakers.
• How to get people to give you 5+ minutes to talk about yourself?
• How do you know if the person you’re investing your time in is worth it?
• How do you know which networking groups are worth it?
• How do you politely exit a conversation?
• How you can tell the type of person by their handshake?
• How you can create good first impressions?
• And more…
Furthermore, we want to have as much FUN as possible so we’re open to all sorts of collaboration. Each Meetup will have RAFFLES and DOOR PRIZES donated by local small business. And, of course, we welcome other Meetup Group Organizers attending our event to share in the collaboration.
This Meetup strives for INTEGRITY and PROFESSIONALISM. We do not condone people who are overtly using this Mixer as a means of prospecting for clients or worse yet “Direct Selling” the other attendees. We intend on being firm, but fair - as your time is valuable.
There are 2 main goals of this Meetup:
1) To share with others the 'best practices' and skills of an effective networker
2) To introduce quality local small business owners/entrepreneurs with other quality local small business owners/entrepreneurs (in hopes that they might be able to support/help each other)
Networking requires a COMPLETELY different skill set as compared to Sales. We acknowledge and address this.
