Speed Business Professional Networking is a business and professional networking event that offers members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, referrals. SBPN networking groups meet once a week in Regus Waterloo centre.
Speed networking is a structured process for facilitating introductions and conversation between people who don't know each other. The model is employed at events for chamber of commerce groups, professional organizations, Marketing and corporate professionals to develop relationships among participants.
How Speed Networking Works - A variety of methods we use to structure interaction with a common thread being the rotation of participants so that each person gets the opportunity to interact with every other person attending the event. Each participant is allotted a period of time to introduce her/himself which will vary from 30 seconds to 5 minutes depending on the size of the group we will have.
Have an Elevator Speech Ready Prepare a short elevator speech which summarizes key elements of your work and experience history as well as what type of clientele you are expecting from your referral source at meeting. Practice articulating this information in a smooth and succinct way within the time parameters of the event.
Since speed networking is a two way process, it is important to listen carefully to each of your partners to make sure you understand their situation and so you can offer advice and help, whenever possible
Members will also have a refreshments coffee, tea etc
