Del Mar Networking Mix+Mingle (50% discount available!)
You are invited to attend a networking mix+mingle event in Del Mar (Carmel Valley), at Searsucker Del Mar. Make new connections with professionals from many different industries throughout San Diego County. It only takes one person to change our personal or professional lives. Undoubtedly, you will make new connections at this event likely to change yours... forever. Please be prepared to engage in business conversations with other professionals, remembering that networking is a relationship-building activity - and that this event is to help foster business connections and social capital. Hard selling of products or services, or participating as though this were a singles social event, would each be counter-productive. We are part of one of San Diego's largest business alliances for local entrepreneurs and businesspersons, now with over 25,000 combined members (and growing rapidly). The event will be posted to each group of this alliance from the local area. * Event Fee: $20 at the door - or save about 50% through pre-paid Eventbrite registration ($9 event fee + $1.22 Eventbrite fee = $10.22). All paid registrants in attendance will receive - at check-in - a $9 Searsucker gift card that can be used while you're there. As space is LIMITED at Searsucker, entry to the event can only be guaranteed to those who pre-register through this Eventbrite registration page (first come, first served - no exceptions, sorry). Please register now if you definitely plan to attend. * This event is sponsored by the members of BNI Carmel Valley (http://bnisd.com/ca-san-diego-county-west-bni-carmel-valley), many of whom will be in attendance. Members of BNI Carmel Valley report receiving nearly $800,000 in business directly through their business network participation over the past 12 months. Come meet these members and ask them how they're generating new business through word-of-mouth and referrals. BNI Carmel Valley members will have multiple door prizes to raffle off between 6:45p-7:00p. A current business card must be provided to BNI Carmel Valley to be eligible for the prize drawing. One prize entry per person. Must be present to win! * Parking: Searsucker is in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center, with considerable complimentary parking. DMHTC has a parking garage located behind the Urban Plates restaurant (and also adjacent to Townsgate Drive) if needed. * Pre-registration is only at the following link: http://sandiegonetworking.eventbrite.com Our events are likely to be among the most productive business networking events you will attend locally. Our focus is Networking ROI: a return on investment, ideas, influence, information, and integrity. Please consider joining our 1100+ person LinkedIn group: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/95137 And also our BRAND NEW group to carry on chat & conversations with people you've met at our events on Facebook! No self-promoting spam though please - it's your opportunity to show your generosity to others in the community first.

    What we're about

    Refresh San Diego is intended to bring value for those in the San Diego area who are interested in web development, new technologies, and business startups - and who are working to refresh the creative, technical, and professional Internet culture. Everyone interested in "refreshing" the Internet is welcome to participate. Events scheduled will be specific to education or information in areas related to web design, web technology, and/or graphic design - and may also include social events specific to connecting the web tech and graphic design communities. In addition, events are scheduled that provide opportunities to connect community members to a much wider network of business professionals and entrepreneurs from throughout Southern California.

    We are part of one of the largest business alliances in Southern California for entrepreneurs and business professionals - with over 30,000 combined members. More on this below.

    Our members include but are not limited to: entrepreneurs, small business owners, corporate executives, company representatives, tech professionals, creative arts professionals, angel and accredited investors, startup experts, revolutionary startup entrepreneurs looking to change the world - or their local community (lean, bootstrap, crowdfunding, or venture capital focused), and people seeking to expand their professional development and/or network.

    The Harvard Business Review has noted: "Face-to-face communication is the broadest bandwidth communication you can have in professional life", and we believe the current business environment will continue a transition towards what thought leader Seth Godin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZ_D2BNqRzU) refers to as the "connection economy" - where value is increasingly created through the connections we make and less so through industrialism.

    Therefore we endeavor to provide networking and educational events that will be uniquely effective in initiating professional connections, developing important relationships, and leveraging social capital to grow a business and increase personal influence.

    It only takes one person to change our personal or professional lives. Undoubtedly, you will make new connections at our events likely to change yours... forever. Every event will have its own unique opportunities. Every. Single. One. It's "about time" to enhance your Networking ROI:

    - Return on financial investment.
    - Return on time investment.
    - Return on emotional investment.
    - Return on influence.
    - Return on integrity.
    - Return on ideas.

    Thank you for your consideration in sharing this group with your network, and/or bringing a friend or business associate with you to our events. As author and thought leader Simon Sinek noted:

    "We do not become great leaders, we do not fulfill our potential when we work to see ourselves grow or rise. It is when we devote ourselves to seeing those around us rise that we actually grow. And when the people we care about also work to see us grow, then they too will grow... The only true way for any of us to grow, to truly fulfill our full potential, is when we work to help others do the same."

    I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event. :-)
