Meet. Greet. Connect. Repeat. That’s the recipe the Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce Speed Networking series at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, October 27 at the Best Western Fairfield Inn.
“It's an opportunity for area business people to meet, greet and get connected through a carefully choreographed, but simple format, designed to ease and accelerate the process of making new business contacts ,” said Chamber executive director Nancy Morrissey, “With the Chamber behind maximizing the networking experience, your only focus will be on making new contacts and expanding their circle.”
The pace is fast with brief face-to-face meetings utilizing a question-and-answer format. Participants are given four minutes to conduct an information-sharing conversation before the group is rotated around the table, generating a new Networking partner and, presumably, a new connection. With the Chamber behind maximizing the networking experience, your only focus will be on making new contacts and expanding your 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. You'll meet, learn, exchange information and move on to another meeting. Then you'll have a chance afterward to reconnect during a mingling period.
Doors open at 6:45 pm and close at 7:00 pm for this fast-paced program. All area businesses are invited to attend. There is not any charge for Chamber members and only $5 for non-Chamber member. Whether you're breaking into the Fairfield market or established, this is a great way to make more solid business contacts in a shorter amount of time than you normally would in a week or more. Don't miss this opportunity to grow your business.
