Overview of topic:
Ken Yap, one of the best networker in the bay area, has shared with us the secret of most effective introduction: it’s not the elevator pitch we have practiced again and again, it’s to let others introduce us on our behalf.
But how do others know how to introduce you? Do you know how to introduce others? The answer is simple: networking is far more than passing out business cards. We need to invest time with people in our network so we really know each other and know how to help each other.
Today’s event is dedicated to in depth networking – spend time and get to know each other so you can introduce your new friends to others. When the opportunity comes you can say it without any hesitation “I have a friend who is the right fit for this because ….”.
Also please come with information sharing in mind: what are other network events that you would recommend to fellow CSIX members? What are the things you really enjoy and would suggest others to give it a try?
This event is for CSIX members by CSIX members. Come help each other and have fun doing it!
