Springfield Regional Chamber Speed Networking Returns Nov. 29
SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Regional Chamber will hold its ever-popular Speed Networking event on Tuesday, Nov. 29 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Colony Club, 1500 Main St., Springfield. The event provides attendees with a quick and entertaining opportunity to introduce themselves and pitch their company to the other attendees.
The core concept to speed networking is the ‘elevator speech,’ a short summary of an individual, business, organization, product, or service — a summary that a person could deliver in the time span of a short elevator ride. Attendees will be divided into two groups, seated across from each other. Each group member will have 60 seconds to give his or her elevator speech to the person seated directly across from them. Once each member has given their elevator speech, they will change seats, and the process will begin again with a new partner. The round-robin format of networking will continue until the event is over.
The event will begin with registration and continental breakfast at 7:30 a.m. To accommodate the event, no admittance will be allowed after 7:55 a.m. The cost is $20 in advance for members ($25 at the door), or $30 for general admission ($35 at the door). Reservations must be made online and in advance at www.springfieldregionalchamber.com or by contacting [email protected].
