All future Orland Park Thinking for a change meetups will be on the 4th Wednesday of the month. The cost is still $15.00 for lunch (whether you eat or not) plus $1.00 in cash to help cover the cost for meetup. Thank you everyone.
Thinking for a change networking "Orland Park" is an off shoot of Thinking for a change business networking group in Downers Grove.
This group is for all of us to get to know new people, learn what they do, let them know what we do, connect on a more personal level to build relationships (after all isn't building relationships what it is all about?) People work with people they know, like and trust and that is what we are trying to build here.
Every person will get 60 seconds, or more, to introduce themselves - let us know who you are, what you do (find a great catch phrase that we won't forget), and who you are looking to connect with (besides each other).
We will be sharing ideas on networking events and how to help each of us promote our businesses (things that each of us may have done that have worked for that person and therefore might work for us).
We will possibly have a speaker at the meeting. That speaker will get 15 minutes to tell us more about his/her business.
We will have an awesome lunch.
Other Thinking For A Change meetups:
Downers Grove meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Emmett's Ale House, 5200 Main St, DG, 11:15-1:00

This group, Thinking for a Change, is what a networking group is all about. We meet to showcase our businesses so others know what we do. Then we LISTEN to what others do. That's when it all begins. We help each other connect for business and we THINK about who we can connect with them. Viola! We make friends; we help each other with referrals; we connect; we think for a change how we can help others, which then helps us (thus the name of our group). We continue to grow as a group and with our businesses. Come and join us. Cost for lunch $15.00
