What we're about

Welcome! This is a really fun and very powerful way to network and build your business; its similar to Speed Dating, but for business.

Bring lots of business cards, and be ready to describe what you do in 30 seconds at the beginning of the meeting. After that, we go around the room, like musical chairs (but no one gets left out), and then everyone gets an additional 60 seconds more to describe what they do one on one.

This Meet-up is for professionals who want to grow their business or practice. We have entrepreneurs, health practitioners, business owners, salespeople, and professionals of all kinds.

There are no restrictions and no exclusivity - anyone can come!

I run similar Meetups in Phoenix and Southern CA, and everyone raves about what an effective and fun way this is to promote their business.

IMPORTANT - Please be on time. Because of the way we do this, it is difficult to add new people after we start, and I can't guarantee we will be able to do that. Feel free to come at 6:15 and network before the meeting starts.

It's also very important to show up if you RSVP. We set up the room ahead of time, and people count on the other people who have signed up to be there. If you aren't going to be there please change your RSVP (and please don't ask me to do it for you - it's really easy to do yourself. Thanks.

And do come - someone may read your profile and come because they especially want to meet YOU - especially if they're in a business where it would be easy to exchange referrals.

You'll be really glad you joined us! This is a great group, and a fantastic way to grow your business and get to know a lot of like-minded people at the same time.

To your success,

Dianna Whitley

We're SpeedNetworking on Zoom! It's fun & very effective - join us!

on your phone or computer

Hi there - Our SpeedNetworking Meetup has been great on Zoom. If you haven't joined us yet, I hope you will. Because it's online now, I've merged my 3 groups - the one here in CA, the one in Phoenix, and the one in Las Vegas. It's always the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6 pm PST, and it lasts an hour and a half. The format is that everyone says who they are, what they do, who a good referral would be for them, and contact info. Then we go into "Breakout Rooms" and meet with each other individually, two people at a time, for 3 minutes each round. So it's the same basic format as when we did it in person. There is a lot of great, positive energy. People make new connections and re-establish old ones. You can either do it on your computer or your cellphone. It's not only fun - you will probably get some good ideas on how you can do YOUR business this way while we're social distancing - and even after this is all over. And of course, it's free. So be there! And tell your friends! The more the merrier! This is important - the RSVP's you see here are only from this one Meetup - people come from all 3 of my Meetups, and other places as well. I will add the link here soon. If you have any questions, just email me - but at my email address below, please. All the Best, Dianna Whitley [masked]
