Are you a business professional wanting a new way to network and build business relationships? Then Outdoor Networking Enthusiasts may be exactly what you are looking for!
With ONE, all of our events and meetings are outdoor focused. Being active in nature brings out the fun & creative side to people which allows for more authentic connections.
This Networking group is perfect for those that love the outdoors and would like to network while being active. You will have the opportunity to learn new skills if you want to and just build relationships in a natural way. The activities and outdoor setting provides commonality and is a natural conversation starter. Not only do we look at getting referrals, but we are also focused on GIVING referrals. I have a system in place that will help with this as long as I get business cards from people that attend each activity.
To join this meet up is free; when there are over 5 people in attendance, there will be a $10-$15 charge. (This does not include rental fees). There will be times where the charge is more to cover costs for lunch, guest speakers, etc.
ONE also has a paid membership option. This membership with OneinPhx.com will provide you with additional advertising opportunities and to attend Meet Ups under $15 at no cost. Membership on the MeetUp platform will never be required- so you can continue to pay for the events as you go.
Also, representation from a particular profession is not limited to one member. It is my belief that even when there are two or three of a certain profession in the group- there is plenty of business to go around.
ONE is designated as a private meetup, geared specifically towards business professionals, and will involve facilitated networking. For instance, if I schedule a hike-introductions will be made before- and then during the hike is where the open conversations happen. The expectation and possible outcomes for each event is sharing what you do- exchanging business cards if necessary, etc., and providing referrals.
I greatly appreciate you answering the two questions when you sign up.
So- a little bit about me: I am the Co-Director for a Non Profit that provides outdoor recreation and back country camps for youth and adult special needs. My favorite outdoor activities include hiking, camping, mountain biking and photography.
