FIRST NETWORKING EVENT of 2016 for locally owned, grassroots businesses!
It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for since our kick-off meeting last month! The announcement of WBL’s first networking event of the year! We’re kicking off 2016 with a speed networking event like you’ve never seen before!
It’s Co-Hosted by the Boutiques of 20th Street! The Event Boutique, Candle Crest Soy Candles, and The Canine Crunchery have all donated their space for the event. The speed networking will be MC’d by none other than Mary Anna Johnson of A-Sign Designs! If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Mary Anna, she’s basically a networking master. If you know Mary Anna, then you’ll know this event will be amazing.
For those not familiar with speed networking, speed networking is a meeting format designed to accelerate business contacts in a short time. Information will be exchanged by businesses within a certain time limit to maximize the amount of contacts you’ll make. Kind of like speed-dating, but less awkward and way more fun!
Here’s some handy tips to help your get prepared!
•Never been to a speed networking event? No worries. It is painless, pressure-free and we will give clear instructions!
•Think of a 30 Second “Elevator Pitch” or short concise description of your business.
•It is IMPERATIVE you either bring business cards, or another form of marketing material so your contacts will remember you and can contact/refer you later.
•Bring a pen and a small pad of paper to take notes.
In addition to speed networking, from 6-6:45 pm you’ll be able to enjoy tours and special fun from all three of the co-hosting businesses, located in the same strip.
This is a free event with drinks and light snacks provided. So don’t miss out on what’s sure to be an amazing evening of fun, friends, and connections!
