We're in 2013, and it's a new year, new resolutions, and not to mention - a new you!

Come this new year, don't just settle for the 'standard' resolutions, but seek to increase your presence, social visibility, and professional network! And no, this doesn't involve having awkward conversations, exchanging cards the whole time, or wandering around a room aimlessly. Instead, it's all about getting your message out, making new acquaintances and kindling new partnerships, while engaging with savvy, entrepreneurial, collaborative and networking-minded people like yourself in a great environment with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres!

The Silicon Valley Story isn't your run of the mill networking 'seminar' or 'event,' rather it is an opportunity to deliver your message and truly accomplish your goals - be it gaining social visibility, promoting your ideas and solutions, finding that new job, getting some professional advice, or even making new friends. While solely handing out business cards may work for a select few, we firmly believe that effectively connecting with people successfully relies telling your story, and sharing your goals and accomplishments with a diverse audience that's interested in helping you!

In addition to our networking event that focuses on active networking, making connections, and promoting yourself, we've also lined up two amazing, and extremely successful speakers,

Mark E. Sackett and Julia Hull, to share their insights with you, as well as answer all the questions you're sure to have.

We've provided a full agenda below, and are excited to meet you at the Silicon Valley Story on January 16th! If you already pride yourself in being well connected, bring as many friends and associates as you can, and share your story, passion, and goals for 2013. Having organized highly successful events in the past, we guarantee you'll thank yourself for making it out, starting the year with a (productive) bang, and perhaps even meeting your next client, employer, employee, or that special someone! Last but not least, be sure to sign up in advance to have a professional, studio photo of you by Higher Contrast Photography at the amazingly low price of $3 (and $10 on site)!
