Speed Networking: Making Connections in a New York Minute
After Don Gabor, networking expert and best-selling author of How to Start a Conversation and Make Friends, humorously describes the most annoying kinds of networkers, attendees will have a series of 5-minute, one-on-one meetings where they will exchange cards, share professional backgrounds, area specialties, products and services, plus their “ideal client” wish-list. Speed networking makes finding new business contacts at conferences fun and a lot faster than anyone ever thought possible.
