This is something new! In our special "show-and-tell" networking meeting,
you're invited to bring a sample of your work to show. Or, come with a BRIEF
marketing case to share, either from your company or perhaps a client with whom
you have worked. (No Powerpoint is expected ... we're informal tonight!) Alternatively,
feel free to use some or all of your time to ask the group for help in whatever
form would be most valuable to you right now. Think of what would help your business
or career: Business leads? Job leads? Specific marketing resources that others
have found useful? People you'd like to meet? Tell us -- the chances are that
someone who can be helpful to you will be in the room!
begin our meeting with a KICKOFF PRESENTATION titled "Network for Revenue." Networking
plays a critical role in most business markets. From demand discovery to relationship
building, executives use networking to inexpensively build their business.
The One Critical Rule to Networking
The Two Routes to Gaining Value through Networking
The Three Keys to Making your Impression Memorable
Participation at any time in this meeting is strictly optional,
and WHAT you choose to share is up to you. The purpose is to
get to know each other better so we can offer mutual support,
both now and in the future.
After our show-and-tell, we'll break for some networking.
You'll have a chance to personally meet anyone who has said
they have a resource or ideas to share, and get acquainted.
We'll also break for our usual informal discussions in the
