    I'm grateful for the opportunity to attend yesterday's event - I found Lorenzo to be a very engaging presenter.

    It was my first event and I have to say I was overwhelmed with the networking portion. For those of us who aren't that good at networking a bit of structure (or instruction =) would be very helpful.

    Awesome event. Great ideas from the presenter (Lorenzo). Great questions and connections. I will surely want to participate in other events.

      Hi Wendy ... thanks for connecting. I suppose in the limited time we did not cover all participants. Would surely like to connect at some point. Hopefully soon. Take care!

    Megan, Thank you for your response. I can appreciate that Telus would like a return on their investment and you have provided a venue for them. I have been attending this function for over two years and am familiar with most of the speakers. I also am one of the entrepreneurs who would like to offer sound and sage assistance to other small business owners and have offered to speak for quite some time. As for the networking challenges, I have at least ten years of experience networking and have participated in various events at least three times a week during this time so hopefully you can see that my input comes from a desire to enjoy the best format possible for the greatest number of people. And, I look forward to your events, learning from the speakers, and meeting many wonderful people, yourself included.

    I have two concerns regarding the meetup. I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and yet when I looked around the room I wondered why Telus was invited to speak, and promote their business and business model in two consecutive meetings when there was so many other brilliant individuals in small and entrepreneurial businesses that would love the opportunity to be at the front of the room. Most of us have very little in common with large corporations and our lessons differ dramatically from our larger national and international partners in business. Secondly, I would like the opportunity to more effectively network with the other participants after the presentation. I have noticed that many people leave or gather in small groups and access to them can only be through interruption. Perhaps there are more effective ways to engage everyone in the process.
