Welcome to the "East Cobb Business Networking Luncheon." I'm Keith Ivey, your host.
Here's what you will want to know to decide if ECBN is good fit for you...and you for ECBN:
Goal - I'm a great believer in personal networks. In fact, my major reason for attending networking events is to find someone who is a good fit for my network. So, my goal for ECBN is to fill the room with business professionals who desire to grow their network...in an entertaining, enjoyable environment.
Members -ECBN members are business professionals. They either own businesses or work for others who own businesses. While they would love to have business transactions inside the group, they are more interested in building their network.
Details - ECBN is an OPEN group that meets for lunch twice a month on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays. DOORS OPEN at noon for networking and lunch is served at 12:30pm. An RSVP is mandatory since a headcount is vital for the restaurant
Agenda - Each attendee will have one minute to use as he/she sees fit. Hopefully, each will use their minute to explain why others would benefit from knowing them and inviting them into their personal network.
Cost - There is no cost to participate but I ask that you order lunch off their menu. Like you and me, the owners of Red Sky are in business to provide great service in return for money and our buying lunch provides them with that opportunity.
RSVP Deadline - My commitment to our restaurant is that I will give them a headcount at 9am on Tuesday before our Wednesday luncheon. That means that the RSVP deadline is 9am on Tuesday and any member who changes their RSVP after 9am on Tuesday will be considered a "No Show." If a member "no shows," twice, they will no longer be invited to the luncheon.
If you feel that ECBN would be useful to you, you are invited to be a part of this luncheon in East Cobb. I look forward to meeting you soon.
