Why Being a Connector is Worth the Investment--with Dave Baldwin

If you're trying to figure out how to build your business, get a better job, or accomplish any other goal, you can accelerate your own success by focusing your efforts on helping other people connect. Even if you're not naturally outgoing, you can be a connector! Dave will be sharing some of the strategies that he used to build up a strong network of close relationships in Raleigh within a few short months--as well as how he has maintained that and grown that network over the years.


Lunch is $12 (be ready to pay at the door). Our lunch talk meetups run from 11:30 to 1:00.

We will have open mingling and networking from 11:30 to 12:00. At 12:00, we will begin the formal presentation by the speaker. Presentations typically run approximately 45 minutes.The buffet will be open for the entire time, but we ask that attendees not go up to the buffet during the presentation. The buffet will continue to be open after the event is concluded.

Please get your food and be ready for the presentation to start promptly at noon.Be sure to bring plenty of business cards!

    Dave has a likeable way about him when he speaks. Topic stressed the *quality* of relationships with people you network, not quantity or numbers.
