[Free!] Authentic Business Networking

Two Georges | The Cove Restaurant & Marina

Tired from a long work week? Looking for good conversation with like-minded business owners? This meeting will provide an opportunity for you to do both and to be an active part of a rapidly growing networking community. We're a diverse group of entrepreneurs dedicated to serving our clients with authenticity and helping each other grow our businesses. Whether you've been in business for years or are just starting out, drop in to So Fla Business Networkers Connect and Grow from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. and join us for casual networking themed around authenticity in business. Come prepared to share your story - not just to hear people pitch at you! We'd love to hear about your business values and your ideal clients; and invite you to find out how other businesses build relationships with their clients. At each meeting, you can expect to pick up new ideas to boost long-term client retention, share referrals, and exchange business cards. Be sure to bring at least one friend who would be interested in our group. This event is free, but we do ask that you purchase a beverage or appetizers to support the establishment hosting our group. Please be respectful of others - if your RSVP changes, change it on the Meetup group to allow space for another person to take your place. We look forward to connecting with you!
