Summer Speed Networking ~ Last Networking before Summer Break!

Our VBME Speed Networking events are huge successes, with over 100 people attending int he past. Come and make some new connections to help you with your business!

What better way to christen the summer than with Summer Speed Networking on a sunny third floor patio!

This is the last networking event before we take our summer break and resume in September and is guaranteed to be very well attended and very good for networking with your fellow professionals who want to keep your year going strong ~Reviews from Part One are here!~

You've probably heard of Speed Dating, where you are allotted a certain amount of time to talk to someone before having to move to the next, in hopes of finding a connection. Imagine doing this for business. This is Speed Networking.

On Tuesday, July 16th, come join over 100 other entrepreneurs and small business owners at 7:30pm (please arrive early to order food and bring a pen, WE START THE EVENT at 7:30 sharp!) at Ceilis Irish Pub for this special event where you will connect with a number of professionals, new contacts who want to be added to your personal network

We'll have the top floor with large windows and skylights so come early for food, stay after for drinks!

What Will Happen

Upon arrival grab your name tag and contact sheet and do a little light mingling until 7:10pm, when we start the event with a few announcements.

Then we'll ring the bell and it's speed networking time! You'll meet other professionals in a series of successive rounds. Each round lasts 3 minutes - just enough time to introduce yourselves, what you do and answer and ask a question each. Don’t worry though, we will be ending the night with more networking; there'll be ample time for you to reconnect with anyone you found interesting or had a “connection” with.

The VBME Speed Networking event is perfect for those who are new to networking or shy, because the format is designed to break the ice and start a great conversation. If you're already comfortable and good at networking, you'll have an even better time!

A $10 cost for this event, which is used to offset the cost of room rentals for other events, if you arrive by 7:30. $15 if you arrive late. Please be sure to sign in and get your name tag at the corner table when you arrive. Come EARLY (before 7:30pm) for dinner and order food and drinks at Ceilis before we get started!

    I hope you all know Ronald Lee is a scam artist and he only uses this event top make money of you. Your paying $10 for 1 hour and you hardly have time to talk to anyone. He's going to make over $1400 and it probably doesn't cost that much for rent. You can probably newwork at a coffee shop for less.

    Ronald is also a dating coach and he made lots of money off desperate guys.

      I met my business partner at a speed-networking event last year and always make excellent contacts at Ronald's events. It's one of the best networking events in the city in my experience.

      He's a business man giving us something we are willing to pay for. What's the difference between what he is doing and any other business?

    Hey Andrew. What's wrong with making a profit? I don't have the time or energy to organize this, and I'm glad someone else is doing it. I've planned and organized enough events to know how much work it really is.
    Aren't we all going with the hope of increasing our bottom line?

      I guess if providing a service and being paid is a scam, then we are ALL scam artists! :)
