Ready for Fun & Professional Networking!
What is SpeedNetworking?
It’s a fast networking event that is fun for everyone that participates. SpeedNetworking is held twice per year and is an opportunity for you to meet fellow Chamber members to share and learn from one another on a professional and personal level. The event is usually held in the morning for an hour and a half or two hours depending on the number of registrations. The goal is to meet as many participants as you can in the allotted time.
Attendees are encouraged to bring business cards, promotional materials/ items that can be easily handled and held onto when moving around, a big smile, and last but not least, we want you to be prepared to share the following information within 60 seconds:
- Who you are,
- The company you own or are employed by,
- Who would be your ideal customer or client,
- Something personal (hobbies, interests, family, travels … EMBELLISH!).
Try to develop a catchy phrase to associate your name, company name and product or service. Come up with several different 60 second scenarios about yourself and try them out. You might find one works better than the others! And remember, marketing yourself successfully requires developing lasting relationships over time. Everyone gets a chance to share and learn about each other in a way that’s non-threatening and fun.
The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce strongly encourages finding your niche through involvement. Participation is the key in making your membership work for you.
