This worked so well in April that we’re doing it again!

This is the primary monthly Meetup for our group.  Come join us if you are new to the group or haven’t been to an event this year.

This is the Meetup where our members get to shine!  We'll be getting together to network, get to know one another and learn more about the services that we provide our clients. 

4 members of our group will give SHORT, 15 minute presentations about their work and the services they provide.  Everyone noted how fast this went last time.  We'll meet at 5 pm, get drinks and munchies, and PROMPTLY start at 5:20 pm with the first of our 4 speakers.

Once they're done, we all get to network and mingle for the rest of the evening.  We all get the chance to follow up with any one of the speakers if you have further questions or want to share with individuals what it is that you do.  This is the Networking part of our group.  Have a drink, share a smile and laughter with other members and have fun!

When we had this event in April time zoooomed by!  I certainly didn’t get to talk to all the members that showed up.  So this time I’m inviting people to stick around until 7:30 pm to give us all more of a chance to network, have fun … and don’t forget the drinks and munchies!

An important part of networking is creating relationships.  You do that by attending this event.  Get to know the members of this group and give us a chance to get to know you.  In order for us to refer clients to you it helps so much for us to know one another.  There are some great people in this group that provide great services.  Come get to know them and give us a chance to get to know you!  That is really the most important part of networking.  Be yourself.  Be the trained, experienced, friendly professional person that you are, and have fun!

The first 4 members of our MeetUp group that contact me asking to speak at this event get the 15 minute slots!  You do that by sending me an email through Meetup. 

I actually have one member confirmed to speak.  We’ll be having this same event format several times as part of our MeetUps in order to give all our members a chance to share their expertise. 

Even if you are not one of the first 4 that asks to speak at the event, please contact me if you want to do this.  I want to make sure the 4 speakers cover different areas of expertise.  Each time we meet for this monthly event I'll make sure we get the various members represented, so all 4 speakers will be from different professions at each of these Meetups.

We'll be meeting at a friend's beautiful home.  No kids or pets allowed for this event.

Again, if you want to speak at this event, send me an email with your name and profession. 

I’m charging $3 per person for this event to cover the monthly dues for keeping this group going on Meetup.  I’ll provide the majority of the drinks and munchies.  You are welcome to bring something to share if you like.  You are also welcome to bring friends and family, co-workers and colleagues.  The more the merrier!

Looking forward to meeting more of you and having you meet some of the great people that are continuing members of this group. 

See you in a few weeks!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
