Event has been postponed to thanksgiving, thank you all for your interest. RSVP link here: http://www.meetup.com/Extremely-Shy-Looking-for-friends/events/124871592/
---------------------------- New here or long timer? Looking to get meet wonderful friends? Nothing better to do? Come out to CONNECTIONS, an evening of awesome refreshments, great people, icebreaker activities and win prizes! This is a way to meet some of the many people in the group!
Many times people tell me they did not get to meet or talk to everyone an an event. And it's understandable, there are many constraints from tables and large number of people and etc... Thats why we have monthly minglers!
Join us for Extremely Shy Vancouver's (ESV's) Connections Mingler event where you are likely to be introduced to at least a dozen people in the room. I'm sure you're all aware of how Speed Dating works. This is going to work in exactly the same way except it's not dating, it's just socializing!
The Cost is $20 at the door (or $18 early bird if you pay online) and goes toward room rental, food & snacks (appetizers, sushi, desserts and drinks), honorariums and prizes etc... We will also have an expert doing a TED talk on making a good first impression (read below).
[Dependent on interest]
Here are some benefits for speed socializing:
You get introduced to lots of people. If you are normally a shy person, this eliminates the need for you to push your way into a clique that is already having a conversation. And you get to have a conversation in a group setting with a new face every few minutes. How cool is that? After the speed networking session is over, there will be lots of time for mingling and socializing.
I guarantee that you will meet lots of new people this evening in a very fun and friendly way. If you are new to the group, this is a perfect way to get to meet lots of other members.
This is not business networking nor speed dating... this is social networking. Please do your business or dating at a business/dating meetup.
Doors open at 7:15pm, come and mingle and get to know other members in a causal setting. Games will start when majority of people arrive.
If this is your first event, do let us know! we'll love to give you an Extremely Shy Welcome
