Have you heard of Speed Dating? I’m sure you have and you know how it works. Well, we have taken that concept and applied it to networking for a fun and unique experience.
It’s simple You sit in pairs with 4 minutes to chat, pitch and impress. Then at the end of the 4 minutes, you move clockwise, and meet a different person. Repeat ! You will make 12 new contacts in just an hour, while honing your elevator pitch!
This is ideal for people who ever wanted to try speed dating or a new style of networking, or those of you shy and nervous about meeting new people in business, or if you are starting a new business or venture and want to practice your pitch.
