The Speed Networking Luncheon--Leverage Your Connections!

Presenter: Kelly Jahner-Byrne,
CEO, Kelly Enterprises International

Welcome back to the “Speed Networking” luncheon, a member favorite and an annual event.  This year’s spring program will be structured in a way that allows members to meet more people and make better connections. Our speaker will start the session by offering tips you can use in any setting to help you “Leverage Your Connections.”

 “Speed Networking / Leverage Your Connections“ is a structured, efficient, FUN and fast-paced event where participants will have face-to-face introductions with other business representatives, one to three minutes at a time.  It is fantastic for experienced and nervous networkers alike.  We KNOW that you will meet more people than you would during the same amount of time in an unstructured setting.  Don’t miss this opportunity! Be sure to get there early to meet as many people as you can.

Remember to bring your business cards and calendar to schedule meetings with your new contacts!
