Green business networking speed dating
Speed networking programs are showing up all around the world.
These events tend to be a fun, exciting and effective way to make a lot of initial connections in a very different environment from the standard business networking meetings.
For example, one variation is to have two concentric circles of people.
The individuals sit across from one another and after the set time period--generally one or two minutes--the outside circle of people gets up and moves in one direction around the circle until everyone has met.
For those whom garner connections, you will be notified via e-mail within 24 hours of the event with your ' Connect-Card' results.
Speed networking programs generally involve people meeting each other one at a time for a short interval and then moving on to the next person in line.
They are fairly structured in the way people queue up to meet.
I believe speed networking can work if it's done the right way.
It can be a fun, energetic and dynamic way to further your own goals of having a thriving, successful word-of-mouth-based business.
