~Sorry for the delay, I've had many inquiries about when our next Speed Networking event will be, so lets do it February 4th!~
Our VBME Speed Networking events are huge successes. With over 100 people attending in previous editions, this is the best and easiest networking event to make new connections to help you with your business!
This is the first one of the year 2014, followed by at a business social party. This was originally scheduled for January, but business is booming and everyone is too busy to host it until February. This year is going to be awesome.
We will end this Speed Networking at 8pm and then you are all encouraged to stay and network, mix, mingle and socialize with food and drink as long as you like.
We expect it to be to be very well attended and very good for networking with your fellow professionals who want to keep your year going strong ~Reviews from a previous one is here!~
What is Speed Networking?
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, February 4th, come join over 100 other entrepreneurs and small business owners at 6:15pm (please arrive early to order food and bring a pen, WE START THE EVENT at 7:10 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 7:10. IT IS $15 IF YOU ARRIVE LATE, after 7:10. Please be sure to sign in and get your name tag at the corner table when you arrive. Come EARLY (before 6:30pm) for dinner and order food and drinks at Ceilis before we get started!
