Faster Than the Speed of Business. One of the newest additions to the Chamber’s program of works, Speed Networking has taken off, and it’s not slowing down. Now happening several times a year, this program is all about you. And them. Together. Making connections.
What: Speed Networking
When: April 17, 2012
Who: All Chamber members, guests; guests of honor: new Chamber members
Time: Noon - 1:30p
With the Chamber and our partner organizers behind maximizing the networking experience, participants only focus can be on making new contacts and expanding the networking circle.
Borne from an increasingly popular concept in business hubs across the country, Speed Networking will put you across the table from a counterpart, customer, colleague or friend you probably didn't know you had.
Emceed by Chamber Board Member Terry Baker, each participant is supplied with a list of possible questions, starters and topics to draw from should they need or choose. The format, however, allows for a lot of conversational flexibility. After a short time, participants move on to a new conversation, a new face and a new opportunity to make a connection.
The object? Leave the event with an expanded web of business contacts, clients, customers, confidants, etc.
Your obligation? Nothing but your time. No uncomfortable lunch dates. No glancing at the ceiling and wishing you were talking with someone else. NO AWKWARD SILENCES. With the Chamber and our partner organizers behind maximizing the networking experience, your only focus will be on making new contacts and expanding your networking circle.
Instead? Nothing. Nothing like Speed Networking is available to you in Fairfield today. Just $20 for Chamber members; $30 for non-members. It's time you expand your circle. Let us help.
