Stay Connected Networking
Stay Connected Networking: Too often, we attend events that are designed to help business people find prospects and make a quick sale. But they’re all the same. You have that guy asking for a business card before learning your name. There’s the young kid trying to land a new job without adding any value to a conversation. And, there’s the lady who just wants you to listen to her new idea for a startup, without understanding who you are and why you’re there. Because of our past experiences, we fully understand the value of making lasting connections and not just trying to score a business card or a meaningless referral. We want to help like-minded professionals and introduce a new style of networking in Pittsburgh. Networking events should be fun, have awesome giveaways, contests and games. They should always foster conversation rather than awkwardness. This event will be just that and won’t be limited to industry or current job position. We want you to make as many connections as possible, with as many different types of people as possible. Our goal is to foster new connections that can lead to new conversations, new ideas and new business opportunities over a lifetime, not just an evening. Who Should Come? Professionals of any industry: Entrepreneurs, business leaders, sales professionals, and any other person who’s career benefits from meeting new people and making lasting connections. What Should You Expect? Our events are focused on meeting new people and fostering stronger relationships with existing contacts. As you build your network, we’ll also help facilitate new ideas for better networking and stronger relationship generation. What Are Your Next Steps? 1. Sign-up 2. Invite a friend or colleague who will benefit from meeting new people and learning better ways to network 3. Prepare to come, relax, have a drink, build a taco, and finally enjoy a networking event designed for the true purpose of business interaction - building relationships! What's Included With Your Ticket? A build-your-own taco bar will be available to our guests, as well as one free drink ticket upon entry. Guests may also enter a business card raffle where one lucky winner will receive a gift basket, plus $100 worth of gift cards from our event sponsor of the evening, Farmers Insurance.
