Speed Networking 101

What is Speed Networking??
Speed Networking is a low-pressure, high-energy event with an accelerated twist.

In a nutshell, you have 30 to 40 seconds to share information about your skills, product, services, and/or business, one on one, multiple times with about half of the other Networker’s in the room.

How does it work?
In this highly structured event, each participant stands (or sits) face to face with another networker.  Each Networker then has 30 to 40 seconds to share information about themselves, their skills, their business, and what their ideal client looks like.

A bell is rung to indicate that it is time to move on to the next Networker.   The
process is repeated over and over to give Networker’s the opportunity to exchange information with about half of the other Networker’s in the room


The Unique Benefit
The key to Speed Networking is in the Follow-up.  Each new connection is a new
potential “Networking Partner”.  It is important to follow-up with the initial
connection to gain “Credibility” over time that can ultimately lead to Profitable
“Referral Partnerships”.

Speed Networking participants will find this unique format to be highly beneficial. Participants will make more connections and generate more business ideas in one short evening then most make in a month of traditional networking.

What to bring to an event
Bring lots of business cards
Your best smile
An open mind
Your 40 second “elevator talk”

Speed Networking is not about the “Single Sale”.  It is about developing
a strong referral base and developing win win relationships over time.
