The speed networking session worked. We brought strangers together, from a lawyer to hand-full of entrepreneurs, learned about them and increased our networks reach all within a span of 3 hours. Want someone else’s opinion on how it went, ask Ryan.
We considered it a success because everyone offered their contact info and wanted to be a part of the next one we host. Yes there will be a next time and we’re looking at increasing our numbers. The thought was possibly for everyone who attended bring one friend that wouldn’t know the group that well and let them share their story. The ideas that come from a group of strangers talking over beers are fascinating.
So my advice this week is to get out and meet someone new, once you leave that comfort zone and your left armpit begins sweating, that is when you will learn the most.Photo credit
