Speed Networking for Evaluators
May 9, 2006
The original idea for this event was suggested to us by an SFBAE member who wanted a way to meet other evaluators one-on-one in a more structured setting than just a general networking reception. We decided to base the format for this networking event on a speed-dating model, and we tailored the details of the event to fit the specific needs of our members.
After a dinner reception, participants took part in a one-on-one quick meet and greet, followed with an informal reception for them to mingle with others they had made a connection with. This was a great way for them to promote their own services, meet strategic partners, practice their elevator speeches and hear what everyone else was up to. After the networking rotation, there was a prize drawing and additional time to socialize.
