Join us for a speed networking event - LIBA style! We did a similar event in May that was so well received we are doing it again. This is our weird networking event, where you'll meet lots of new members in a 'speed dating' style event that includes some fun questions as well. Jennifer Blair of Excavive™ Coaching & Consulting will moderate our speed networking as we take turns telling each other about our businesses.
We'll have some casual time for lunch and to chat more with some of your new acquaintances around 12:30pm. You can order a box lunch in advance (see the info below) or bring your own. Beverages will be provided for all.
How Weird Networking Will Work:
You will be seated opposite someone at a table.
Each pair will have 4 minutes (2 minutes for each person).
(We will try to rotate so you can meet everyone, depending on how many people attend - and there will be time to mingle after.)
After the bell, one side only of the table will move chairs.
To prepare for this event (and all networking opportunities), we suggest you:
* Bring business cards (at least 50) and brochures if appropriate.
* Think about what you’re an expert in.
* Think about what you need help with.
* Use your time wisely
* Be clear about who you are, what you do and how you could use help
* Be curious about the other person
Use WEIRD Questions if you get stuck. Here are some suggestions:
1. Weirdest place you have made a business connection
2. Weirdest interview question either you have asked and been asked
3. Weirdest marketing tip
4. Weirdest business idea or strategy
5. Weirdest experience related to your work
