For the introverts of the world, professional networking can be a challenge. What do I say without sounding awkward, or sounding like I'm a freshly minted graduate, or just a total dork? Am I dressed too formally for this event or did I dress way too casually? What if I have nothing in common with the other people here?
Sound familiar? Introducing Networking for Nerds. This group is designed to be a professional networking group for all levels of nerds without the pressure or stuffiness of your typical networking events. Prospective members would define themselves as some form of nerd and ideally be new to their business. They should be looking to expand their professional network and build a referral base to help their business grow--but if you're already established then that's okay too!
Each meeting will have casual networking based around a lightly structured agenda. Members can have a time set aside for a feature of their business and what they do, if interested (I'll try to have time set up for one of these per meeting, just so we don't overshadow each other).
Come as you are, bring a friend if you'd like, and let's take over the networking realm together!
