Speed networking programs are showing up all around the world and now it’s coming to Pittsburgh. These events tend to be a fun, exciting and effective way to make a lot of initial connections in a very different environment from the standard business networking meetings.
On Thursday, February 25, my company the Marben Bland Group will be sponsoring Pittsburgh’s first open speed networking event from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM at the Sigmas Conference & Event Center 1717 Babcock Blvd. Pittsburgh, PA. While other speed networking programs have been conducted, sponsored by specific groups with closed membership requirement. This is Pittsburgh’s first truly open event without membership restrictions.
How Does Speed Networking Work
Speed networking programs generally involve people meeting each other one at a time for a short interval and then moving on to the next person in line. They are fairly structured in the way people queue up to meet. For example, one variation is to have two concentric circles of people. The individuals sit across from one another and after the set time period–generally one or two minutes–the outside circle of people gets up and moves in one direction around the circle until everyone has met. The event on Thursday will work like this.
