The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to attend Speed Networking, a networking event offered exclusively to Chamber members in the Greater New Milford area.
Due to the format of Speed Networking:*
- Attendance is limited to 30 participants
- We are operating on a first come/first serve basis
- One representative per Chamber membership may attend
- An RSVP is required
*Speed networking is a method of making a potential business contact by briefly speaking one-on-one with people at an organized event and exchanging contact details.
Networking can help local businesses build leads and uncover new opportunities as well as raise a business’s profile within the business community. Networking can be an effective and low cost component of any business’s marketing plan and often yields a relatively high “bang for the buck” compared to other forms of marketing. Also, for some business people, it can be difficult to break down barriers and approach new people at existing Chamber networking events like the monthly Business Scenes. With these things in mind, the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce is pleased to hold Speed Networking events for Chamber members. These free events will include a structured networking period which will maximize the number of people each participant meets and speaks with.
Each attendee is encouraged to prepare an elevator pitch+ and bring a stack of business cards or other marketing materials to distribute as part of the event. Our intention is for each attendee to arrive with a stack of their own business cards and leave with a stack from those new business acquaintances they met during the Speed Networking.
+An elevator pitch is a brief overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The pitch is so called because it can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (60 to 90 Seconds).
