Extensive Strategic Networking - New Format Pilot Meeting!

EXTENSIVE STRATEGIC NETWORKING - Pilot Meeting!

INTRODUCING A NEW FORMAT OF NETWORKING THAT CREATES IN-DEPTH CONNECTIONS AND BUILDS STRONGER RELATIONSHIPS

Dear Really Nice People,

Greetings! 2013 has marched into end of its second month so far, how is everyone on achieving your annual/monthly goals? It is my privilege to introduce a new format of networking concept to our business-minded Really Nice People in this meetup group.

Networking only pays off if you CONSISTENTLY attend the same group meetings and get yourself acquainted in front of people. When people see your face repeatedly and as they know you more and more over a period of time, they will then be more willing to refer businesses to you. People make mistakes thinking they come to networking events to find their clients among these people whom he passes business cards to, but in reality networking only brings in real results after at least SIX MONTHS of continuous effort and attendance. Business mostly happens AFTER the foundation of trust is established. Therefore, we introduce this new format to help our Really Nice People form stronger, lasting business relationships more quickly and easily.

The main theme of the Extensive Strategic Networking is "To Give Before I Receive. To Share Means I Care."

Please BRING BUSINESS CARDS as it is an important part of this structure.


09:30AM Open Networking & Coffee/Breakfast Time
Get yourself acquainted with your fellow networking RNPs and get a cup of coffee or a McMuffin from downstairs. Nothing connects people more easily than over some food and coffee.

10:00AM Individual Story-Telling (2-minute)
We call it story-telling because people remember who you are more easily if you engrain a little story in your introduction. Something that makes you stand out and makes people want to support you and your business. We will have a 2-minute format to help with your story-telling.

11:00AM Business Showcase Speaker
Each week we have a business individual from the group who attended last meeting, whose business card was drown out at the end of the meeting.  

11:30AM Our Two-Cents
Every business and/or individual faces challenges from time to time. To Give Before You Receive. To Share Means You Care. This is a perfect opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with others, gain some ideas from others' experiences, and brainstorm with a group of intelligence from a variety of backgrounds.

11:45AM Q&A, Showcase Speaker Drawing, Next Event Updates & Wrap-Up!

Our Showcase Speaker for our Pilot Meeting:

    Unusual, but effective format. Had a much better chance to get to know more about the other attendees & not just collect a stack of cards.

    Hi all! I really enjoyed this morning together :) I look forward to seeing everyone at the next one! By the way, that book I was recommending to network marketers who want to lead is: Dare to Dream and Work to Win. Another highly recommended book on winning in LIFE that I love is The Charge by Brendon Burchard. :D

    I felt very comfortable in this atmosphere. I think the format allows not only a networking opportunity but allows us to think about self-direction. It was a deeper level of the general networking meetings I have been at recently. I felt fulfilled by the event.
