WHAT IS THE FORMAT FOR THIS EVENT?
We make networking more efficient and effective by allowing you to search profiles of attendees who you most want to network with. You can then invite them for a scheduled 10 minute private 1-on-1 networking session, for which our system automatically helps with calendar scheduling and private zoom links. Schedule multiple 10 minute networking sessions on your events calendar with targeted people who share your same interests, making networking more comfortable, fun and productive!
Step #1 – Fill Out Your Profile & Search Attendees:
After you register, fill out your profile in our events platform with your picture, who you are, what you might need, and how you can help others in need. Then search the profiles of attendees who could help YOU, along with OTHER attendees who you could potentially help. Remember the network effect works best for everyone when we are ready to GIVE just as much as we GET.
Step #2 – Request A Networking Meeting:
We have created over 18 timeslots for you, each timeslot 10 minutes long, to meet 1-on-1 with other like-minded individuals. Request a networking meeting with other attendees, and our events platform automatically schedules the networking meeting with zoom links. Physical attendees who are meeting other physical attendees can meet at either Section A, B, C, or D in our large events room, just login to your zoom meeting at your scheduled time so you both can confirm your physical section to meet. Physical attendees who are meeting virtual attendees can find a more quiet section of the events room to take their zoom meeting at their scheduled time.
