WHY SPEED FRIENDING?

In our speed friending, we arrange for you to meet and chat with each other. This gives you an easy and convenient way to meet new people in a way that completely dissolves barriers. This is NOT speed dating and so you will be meeting both ladies and gentlemen in mixed groups. The intent is to create friendships.

One of the greatest benefits is that this tears down the walls of shyness. Many people have deep-seated anxiety when it comes to talking to people they don’t know. But when you push outside your comfort zones, this speedy connection opens up the door to allow you to easily communicate and work together with other members of the group.

Speed friending allows you to identify other people with common interests. The conversations that take place don’t have to be deep, profound or even scripted; simply discussing likes and dislikes may lead to future friendships. Often, people want to make new friends, but they aren’t quite sure how to go about it. With speed friending, you can start pursuing that goal without appearing socially awkward or desperate.

Here’s how it will be set-up:

1) Half of the group (mixed gender) will stand in a fixed place and the other half of the group (mixed gender) will rotate. During these intervals, each pair of people will get the opportunity to talk to each other.

2) ANNA will be hosting the evening and she will organize the speed friending. She will indicate when you should move to the next person.

3) We will meet from 6.00pm onwards. You should get yourself a drink and also any food before 6.45pm.

4) The Speed friending part will start exactly at 6.45 pm onwards and continue till about 7.45pm followed by a break and finish at 8.40pm, so please try and be there on time. If you are late then you can join the speed networking midway.

5) We have the cinema room downstairs which is booked for ANNA/Meetup. We will have a reserved area for our members. Please be sure to read the events board to know which room is ours on the day. You can also ask the security guard on the ground floor.

6) Please be aware that over 85% of attendees are attending for the first time and over 95% of attendees come alone. You will not be alone. ANNA will welcome you and help you get comfortable.

7) Happy Hours until 9 pm.
