8:00-8:30 pm Food and mingling
8:30-9:15 pm *Team Trivia
Instead of trying to talk to everyone at the event and running out of time, you will have the opportunity to give a 30-60 second Elevator Pitch about your business, so that everyone is guaranteed to hear at least the basics about what you do.
By listening to others’ pitches, you will be able to streamline your networking efforts later by zoning in on the specific business owners who caught your attention.
There will be a table designated for business cards, brochures, product samples or other promotional or informational materials if you wish to display them.
*Take part in the Team TRIVIA to have fun and build closer relationships which may lead to new clients.
Cost to attend: $15 in advance or $20 cash at the door
Annual GTApreneurs membership for $149, includes all 12 monthly A New Way to Network events.
Nicole, Etobicoke, ON: “Before starting the program, I did not have the confidence to stand up in front of a group and speak. It was something I struggled with for a long time. Tammy was patient and encouraging throughout the entire learning process. Now, although I still have a long way to go – I feel like I have gained more confidence and tips to help me succeed in public speaking. Despite public speaking just being one aspect of my job, I feel as though the confidence will transcend into other parts of my life. I’m happy to have taken the first step in improving my speaking with Tammy!Thanks so much, Tammy for helping me!”
Annette, Belleville, ON: “I was nervous at the beginning, standing in front of strangers. But I got over the fear after a while. I took the course so that I could gain confidence. I am more confident now and less nervous. I feel I am better equipped to speak in public. The instructor was very helpful and knowledgeable. She was aware of our weaknesses and helped us to improve. I would recommend this course.”
