100 Place to Network– some may surprise you!
When thinking of places to network the first thing that springs to mind is a chamber or board of trade event. Yes, chambers and boards of trades are actually great places to network. You meet a diverse group of people, and the bonus is they often have young professionals groups (LOT and CYP) and women’s networks (WLC) These kinds of networks offer amazing connections to business leaders.
But there are many other ways to network and if drinking scotch and networking (a little imbibing makes networking easier) or connecting with your mayor and local city officials weren’t on your networking radar, they should be! We’ve got 100 places to say “hello, my name is…”
Jen The Connector
Also, there’s no reason why you can’t be the connector. Just ask Jen Schaeffers. Jen started this website and it’s now the go-to place for interesting networking events in Vancouver. Make Networking in Van (Number 94 on our list of 100 Places to Network) your home page and you’ll be surprised at all the varied networking opportunities are popping up all the time.
You The Connector
You can be the connector by organizing a group of friends or colleagues for a one night event (wine tasting organized at a restaurant) or an annual event like a golf tournament. Most golf courses will help you stage an event. The key is to get everyone to invite someone new to the group! A diverse network introduces you to people you don’t already know.
