In addition to building your skills and gaining knowledge, events and programs are an opportunity to broaden and deepen your network by making new connections in the community. To learn more about YNPN Chicago programs, click here.
Start the fall season on the right foot by growing your professional network in a fast, casual environment! Want to meet other like-minded professionals and make strong connections? Are you itching to network but shy away from big happy hours? Need to practice your "pitch" or self introduction? Unsure how to approach a new person or what to say? Then YNPN Chicago’s Speed Networking is for you!
Speed networking is the business version of speed dating. The event is structured and fast-paced, allowing participants to interact with countless professionals and expand their networks in mere minutes. Crafted to maximize connections in a short amount of time, be sure to have lots of business cards on hand!
For some, even 2-3 minutes feels too long when you don't know what to say, so YNPN Chicago will provide suggested topics for you to discuss with other event goers. Once the speed networking portion of the program is complete, there will be a designated time for open networking so you can continue conversations from earlier in the evening but also meet new participants.
Since the event is structured to maximize your time and potential connections, please arrive on time; we will begin the first round of networking promptly at 6:40pm.
By registering for this event you certify that you are over 21 years of age and able to provide a valid form of identification at the event.
