Connect Networking

January 23, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Positive topics. Positive speakers. Positive experience.

Did you know that networking is the number one way to expand your business and personal relationships? In fact, most people get their next job, find the right salesperson, or learn about a new deal from people in their network. How can you get these benefits if you don’t have anyone in your network? You can’t!

Connect Networking will put you in touch with people in your community so you can grow your network. Here, you get the chance to shake hands and talk shop with some of the brightest minds in SWFL. Take your future into your own hands, and join us for the quarterly Connect Networking!

Connect Networking is open to anyone in the community. It features networking opportunities to meet others in the community as well as learn about informative topics by interesting guest speakers.
