How does it work?
  • We begin at 6:00 pm with Unstructured Networking. This provides the opportunity to meet your fellow networkers and enjoy light refreshments, appetizers, salads, wraps, and desserts.
  • Around 6:15 pm, we start with the Rules of Engagement so all attendees (especially our first timers) know the structure and expectations of the meeting.
  • At 6:30 pm we begin where each executive gets a turn to present their Value Propositions, target companies, and what they are offering the group. In return, the group responds with Leads contacts, opportunities, and market intelligence.
  • The session ends at 9:00 pm but there is always ample time to single out networkers of special interest and have more in-depth conversations.
What else do you need?
  • Be ready to give a two-minute introduction summary (your Value Proposition). It is the answer to the question: "Tell me about yourself." Share what you can offer the group and what you would like from the group, including how you may be a "solution" to someone's problems. Be ready to help others with ideas, leads, feedback, and suggestions.
  • Be ready to ask the group for introductions or leads to your targeted companies
  • Be ready to share information you have to offer others.
  • Bring business cards and 15 copies of your one page Overview Sheet (resume/bio) that also lists your target organizations to exchange with others in attendance.
