Pencil Me In is a speed networking event catered to savvy entrepreneurs who are interested in long-lasting, mutually beneficial business relationships. Speed networking is akin to speed dating, butterflies and all - the only difference is that you’re getting face time with potential clients or customers, in addition to service or product providers.
Come prepared to dig your roots deeper into your entrepreneurial community and experience how these new connections will create solid growth and sustainability for your business.
A study conducted by the Harvard Business Review shared that "95% of participants said that face-to-face meetings are a key factor in successfully building and maintaining long-term business relationships.... and 79% said that in-person meetings are the most effective way to meet new clients to sell business”. The format of this speed networking event creates these face-to-face meetings for you, plugged into a fast-paced schedule that allows you to connect with as many people as possible, maximizing your precious time.
Cocktails and lite bites will be served throughout the evening. The speed networking rounds begin promptly at 6:00pm. This will be followed by an informal, open networking round at 7:00pm.
This is not a time to simply give a sales pitch. We hope that you dedicate your two minutes of face time to explore the possibility of a mutually beneficial business relationship. We encourage everyone who feels the synergy to exchange contact information in order to schedule a time to get together for a one-on-one meeting in the future.
Admission is $20.00 at the door. Admission for Common Desk members is free.
