Speed Networking Social


One of the most frequent comments that I receive as an organizer is when members say to me that they did not get to meet or talk to everyone at a given event. This is understandable. Sometimes the events do not allow you to move about e.g. a dinner evening. Other times the event is too large. And of course quite frequently there is a lack of time.

So.... please join us for our very popular Speed Networking Social -- the perfect event where you are guaranteed to be introduced to 50% of the people in the room. I'm sure you're all aware of how Speed Dating works. This is going to work in exactly the same way except it's not dating, it's just socializing!

Here are some benefits:

  • You get introduced to lots of people.
  • If you are normally a shy person, this eliminates the need for you to push your way into a clique that is already having a conversation.
  • And you get to have a conversation one-on-one with a new face every 5 minutes. How cool is that?

After the formal networking session is over, there will be lots of time for mingling and socializing.

I guarantee that you will meet lots of new people this evening in a very fun and friendly way. If you are new to the group, this is a perfect way to get to meet lots of other members at a single event.

Rules

This is not business networking.... this is social networking. You are not required to have business cards. If you wish to promote your business or service, then by all means, please bring your business cards and hand them to the other person during your one-on-one sessions. Scattering your business cards or flyers on every table however is not appreciated so please refrain from doing so.

Noise Level Warning!

Please note that this is a very noisy event!! With this many people speaking at the same time in the same room, the noise level will be high and you will find yourself having to speak very loudly. If you are not comfortable in loud environments or if you lose your voice easily, this event is not recommended for you.

Agenda

We will start gathering at 7:00 PM for a drink or a bite to eat and for some informal networking. The formal speed networking will start at 8:00 PM sharp. This event is time sensitive. Please arrive before 8:00 PM. I will not be able to get you into the rotation after 8:00 PM!

See you there!

    Enjoyed a great night mixing and mingling with new and old friends. Learned that the cook at Office Pub puts hot sauce on EVERYTHING, even if you didn't ask for it, and they don't tell you that. Drank lots of water. Still drinking lots of water . . .

    Thanks Sash for tossing another amazing social evening.

    Too funny. It's a networking night! But some people are bound and determined to make it speed dating. Let the games begin!! ;>

      I hope the speed dating will result in some slow slow loving and romance.Dont you??

      October 21, 2013

    • Chris A.

      Well ... no ... not with one another ... sorry lmao... I also don't think this is speed dating. More like talking and speed mingling...

      Sandy, we are attending for a reason - age is irrelevant. For me I'm job hunting and I am interested in connecting with people of all ages and having fun!

    Hi Sash,
    As you know, I have to get up very early for work. Approximately for how long does the speed network last? I assume it depends on the number of people registered, but do you have an estimate based on previous events?

    October 10, 2013

  • mitch w. k.

    Previous plans. Now now people....stop crying.

    October 9, 2013

    I wish it was in the west end where there would be some parking facilities.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
