Raise Your Glass! Happy Hour Networking for Women Entrepreneurs
For years I have followed an old school 70’s/80-s model of networking: happy hour! Happy hour is about relationship building, helping, building alliances, learning. It’s about growing in a casual fun way.
**If you are registered for the "Vision of Your Best Self" Program, this event is FREE, Ann will RSVP for you!**
Here is what one member said about this event: "I love the unconventional networking Ann inspires! It's more like a matchmaking session! Always educational and sassy!"
This networking opportunity allows you as business women to come together and laugh, learn, connect and share all over a glass of wine and some nosh!
Currently I hold these in my home, as we grow we will look for a larger space. I live in the North East bay, off I80 Hilltop area, easy to get to from San Rafael, Vallejo, Walnut Creek and El Cerrito (address will be given to those that are registered, if you have been before, you know where!). We have a beautiful 9000 square foot urban garden, and a comfy home we love.
Agenda: 4:30-5pm arrive, grab a glass, informal networking, meet and greet
5:15-6:15 Networking, relationship building with smart intention, fun, laughter maybe even a tear or two! What makes this special is it isn't just "pass your cards and flyers"!
6:15-7:15 Expert Networking Round**, meet and networking with an expert, ask questions, build alliances with strategic partners. Want to be an expert at this event? Contact Ann for details. You must register for the event to be considered.
$25 to attend. Includes visibility for YOUR business, relationship building, community, wine and snacks. Bring your business cards, wear something casual (no spiked high heels on the hardwood please)
Do you have to drink wine to attend? Of course not, there will be non-alcoholic choices. We encourage everyone be responsible.
** Any business owner has the opportunity to run an Expert Networking Round. We allow 2-3 people become the experts for the session. You lead a discussion around your business expertise, facilitate partnerships, share and offer answers to questions. It is a huge opportunity to PROMOTE your business without SELLING, because you build trust, credibility and relationship. There is an additional fee in addition to registering to have the honor of being an expert for 30 minutes with 8-10 business women. Your bio and business link will be on the Meetup page for 30 days as a sponsor, and you can offer a perk to members on there during those 30 days on the meetup and facebook group. You will be, the only people other than the leader to promote during that month. Contact Ann for details (email to the left).
